 Saudi Arabia increases the number of female teachers in its private and foreign institutions

The Saudi Ministry of Education has issued a directive allowing female teachers to instruct both male and female students from kindergarten through sixth grade in private and international schools. Yousuf Al Benyan, the minister of education, confirmed the information.

According to the Minister's statement, the action is intended to enable the transition of children from preschool to the completion of primary school smoothly and easily and to ensure psychological stability for them.

Gender segregation has historically been practiced in Saudi Arabian schools beginning around the fourth grade. Accordingly, starting at that age, female professors would normally teach female students and male teachers would teach male students.

This initiative also aims to strengthen the private sector's contribution to meeting quality requirements for delivering educational services in contemporary ways that support educational achievements. The minister has ordered all concerned parties to abide by this new regulation, and any rules that conflict with it will be revoked.

The action is viewed as a key milestone in Saudi Arabia's continuous efforts to promote gender equality and educational reform. The learning environment for kids should be improved, especially during the vital early years of education, and the number of women entering the teaching profession is predicted to rise.
