Kuwait warns private schools against hiking fees without approval

Kuwaiti education ministry has denied reports suggesting that some private schools in the country have increased their fees and warned schools against taking decisions unilaterally without its permission, Kuwaiti Times has reported. "Aside from the annual 3% increase in school fees that the ministry's Council of Undersecretaries allows, the ministry has not received any requests from private schools asking to collect extra fees from students during the upcoming school year," said the director of the private education department in the ministry, Mohammad Al-Dahes.
