Kuwaiti parents stage sit-in protest over school fees

Kuwaiti parents have staged a sit-in to protest against hefty private school fee hikes.

The parents claim schools have illegally increased tuition costs for 2014-15 above the Ministry of Education standards, Arab Times reported.

MP Talal Al Jalal said the ministry was failing to properly regulate school fees and demanded Acting Minister of Education and Higher Education and Deputy Prime Minister Abdulmohsen Al Mudej intervene.

Private school fees are a contentious issue across the Gulf.
