System of Education in Kuwait. PIER World Education Series. Working Paper.
The report describes the educational system of Kuwait from primary school through university. An introductory section gives an overview of the system, and subsequent sections detail curricula at each level, pre-university (including primary, intermediate, and secondary) and university-level. Pre-university education is divided into four instructional sectors: general, vocational, religious, and special education. University-level education includes applied education and undergraduate and graduate study at Kuwait University. A brief section on private education describes four school types, following either the British, French, or American educational systems or the Ministry of Education curriculum. Samples of student records are reproduced. Two appendixes provide notes on what happened to the educational system during the Gulf War and the names of private schools. (MSE)
