KUWAIT CITY, Feb 21: The National Bureau for Academic Accreditation and Quality of Education has decided to withdraw 3,000 master-degree holders in Ministry of Education and some private universities because they obtained their degrees from unaccredited universities that are not included in the accreditation list of the bureau, reports Al-Shahed daily.

Meanwhile, the General Education Sector of Ministry of Education has launched four new educational supervisory functions, which includes assistant director of kindergarten, principal of primary school, instructor of chemistry, biology and music, reports Al-Rai daily quoting informed sources. They revealed that the step was taken due to work requirements and shortage of staff.

Meanwhile, Undersecretary of Ministry of Education Dr Haitham Al-Atari has declared that the ministry will hire male and female teachers from Jordan and Egypt to work in the General Education Sector in the next academic year 2017/2018.
