Poor public transports hinder development

KUWAIT: The Ministry of Education (MoE) yesterday issued a directive suspending all transfers within educational directorates or from one directorate to another as educational teaching staff and timetables are stable now at various schools. The ministry added that in case of any urgent shortages, a teacher can only be deputized to other schools, said educational sources. The sources also noted that Ahmadi educational zone is now fully staffed with teachers and all it needs to resolve the problem of teachers in Sabah Al-Ahmed City schools is to coordinate with respective supervisors.

Public transports
A report by Arcadis consultancy firm for natural and built assets on sustainable cities showed that Kuwait’s public transport networks are very limited and hinder development. The report also showed that cities such as Cairo suffer from public transport limitations as well as high levels of air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions. According to the report, Kuwait is ranked fourth amongst the world’s worst sustainable cities.
