Education

Kuwait Education

Kuwait’s public education system now enrols some 60% of the nation’s nearly 600,000 pupils, although private education continues to be popular. To address the demand currently putting pressure on tertiary institutions, a second public university is set to open in 2015. Meanwhile, public institutions are seeking to address the nation’s deficiencies in research and development, while at the same time ensuring that students are equipped with the skills needed to meet the challenges of the 21st century and address disparities in the labour market. This chapter contains an interview with Fahad Al Othman, Chairman, American University of the Middle East.
