KUWAIT: A number of private school students and their parents recently demonstrated outside their school in protest towards the increasing of the school’s tuition fees as a result of upgrading the school category from B to A said informed educational sources. It is also worth noting that the charity fund only pays the fees for needy students in category B school while parents have to pay the difference in category A schools. Furthermore, the sources added that private schools can be upgraded once they meet certain conditions set by the private education directorate and only then can they legally increase their fees.
