Qatar limits number of students in classes

April 8, 2014 2:16 am

Qatar’s Supreme Education Council (SEC) has asked several private schools in the country to stop new admissions if they have already reached saturation level or look for new premises to shift extra students, the Peninsula has reported. The SEC has asked all private schools to not put more than 30 students in one class. The nearly-a-dozen Indian schools in Qatar, which together have the largest number of expatriate students on their rolls, are among the worst hit by the new regulations. With their academic year beginning this month, most of these schools have a long waiting list of new applicants but hardly any seats to offer.
