 Saudi Arabia Will Require That International Schools Teach Its History And Geography

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's education and science ministry has finalized a new rule governing private schools. The new regulation mandates that Saudi pupils be taught national history and geography in private schools that follow an international curriculum, The law intends to govern the provision of the educational sector by the private and nonprofit sectors by applying quality standards and raising the bar of performance and outputs in private schools.

According to the law, teachers who work in private schools must get a valid professional license from the Education and Training Evaluation Commission. It permits the applicant to be a Saudi or foreign investor or a partnership between them. It also allows them to be a public interest entity. The condition also holds that if the owner of the facility violates one of the conditions, he may, with the approval of the Ministry, transfer the licensing rights to another person who fulfills them within a period not exceeding three months or the end of the school year.

The law says that the school will be sanctioned if it disobeys its directives, judgments, or executive norms, or if it appears to harm public personalities, the Islamic faith, the King and his government, the intellectual security of society, or health and safety regulations.

A fine of a maximum of SAR 500,000 ($133,000) can also be penalized in case of violation of any rule. The school can also be permanently closed, its license revoked, and the principal or/ and teachers deported

The severity of the violation and its frequency are taken into consideration when imposing sanctions. Additionally, the school's size, the caliber of its outputs, and the community's involvement in aggravating and ameliorating conditions will also be taken into account.
