Bahrain: Ministry of Education Will Not Reduce School Hours

School hours to remain the same

A proposal urging to reduce the number of working hours to four at primary schools and five at intermediate and secondary schools has been rejected by the Education Ministry, stating that there is currently no evidence to suggest that a change in timing is necessary.

“The ministry is committed to keeping the current school hours. Any reduction in hours would be to the detriment of the students’ educational needs,” the Education Ministry stated in a statement issued.

Despite resistance from the ministry, the parliamentarians passed the proposal, which may go to the Cabinet for being considered.
