Kuwait: Co-education ban to be canceled?
Some lawmakers had previously proposed an amendment to the law that mandates that separate schools and university classes must be allocated for male and female students in the public and private sector, said the source who spoke to Al-Qabas on the condition of anonymity. "The proposal was not forwarded in coordination with the government, which negatively affected the government's serious attempts to amend the law," the source added.
He also indicated that the majority support that the government enjoys in the parliament should be used to scrap the coeducation ban as soon as possible. Furthermore, the source said that the "current cooperation between the legislative and executive authorities" has brought positive results "including the fact that MPs have not responded to labor strikes and financial demands as opposed to their predecessors, which was in line with the state's financial directions."
