No Summer Salaries, No maternity leave for Bedoon teachers

Kuwait educational body depends on a majority of expatriate teachers from Egypt , Syria, and other countries . Citizen teachers are hired by the civil Service council with salaries reaches up to 4000 US $ per month if they were beginners and 1300 US $ for foreign teachers with other benefits. However, the Service Council refuses to hire qualified Bedoon teachers and have exceptionally done so with no contracts, rights, or benefits under the system of “temporary rewards.”

This comes as a form of discrimination, as those few Bedoon teachers, as reported by Al-Watan newspaper, will get no summer salaries like other teachers and have no right to maternity leave, if women. Many Bedoon work in private schools with no legal contracts and get paid less than 500$ with no rights and in worse conditions than those in public schools.
