New Bill to Impose School Fees on Non-Bahraini Students


Members of the parliament this week will discuss a bill seeking to limit free education in Bahrain to Bahraini and GCC citizens only.




If approved, the bill, proposed by MP Jalal Kadhim in 2015, will impose a BD400 annual fee for non-Bahraini students.

The current law stipulates that “fundamental (primary and intermediate) and secondary education should be free for all in public schools in the Kingdom.

The proposal also calls for exempting students of countries that do not charge Bahraini students for receiving educational services.

This comes as the Services Committee in the Council of Representatives issued a report on the bill for the second time in one year, following a disagreement between MPs and Education Ministry on the bill last March.

The proposed tabled by the MP calls for amending Article 7 of the existing Law 27 of the year 2005 with respect to educational services in the Kingdom.
