Kuwait Ordered to pay 5000 KD to School Girl

May 24, 201614 Comments

A Kuwaiti administrative court ordered a public school to pay a preparatory schoolgirl KD5,000 damages after she ‘failed’ the final examination due to a mistake in the institution’s system, a newspaper reported on Sunday.

The girl’s parents were told by the school management in the capital Kuwait City that their child in Grade 11 did not pass the exams and would not move to the Grade 12.

“The girl’s father went to the school and talked to the management, who told him his daughter failed,” Al Watan daily said.

“He was shocked because he knows his daughter is good in studies. A few weeks later, the school contacted him and said that his daughter passed the exams and that it was a mistake in the system. He reported the school to authorities and demanded damages for the psychological suffering caused to his child.”
