I have no problem being opinionated and controversial on this topic. The vast majority of teaching professionals, and I personally know dozens, who have taught in Kuwait know it to be the “arm-pit” of the international education circuit. You go to a job fair and, if all else fails, you can be hired in Kuwait at the drop of a hat. This is a fact, not an opinion. I challenge your readers to provide the ISR readership with the name of one school that is professionally run. Some years ago there may have been several decent schools but this all changed with the advent of Kuwait ownership. There are major problems with all of them – if this wasn’t and isn’t the case then why would such a tiny, inconsequential country be so over-represented in the negative reviews on the ISR site? The people who stay there, year after year, do so for one reason – money! It is a gravy train of private tuition and people can bank their teaching salaries. Could we please just face the facts on this issue and could you please stop pretending that there are really two sides to this issue? I also challenge you to print this letter and let your readers decide if I’m correct or not.
