Kuwait: Summer School Costs

Sumi-Kuwait rants about the rising costs of summer schools. “I have always wanted to send my kids to the British School of Kuwait's (BSK) Summer Program. I assumed it would last the entire summer and be at least affordable. I just got off the phone with the operator at BSK and was stunned to learn that the program only lasts for 21 days and it costs 130KD per child!! So, it would cost me 260KD for my two oldest to attend for only 21 days!! I might consider paying the fee if the camp lasted the whole summer. This is really ridiculous!”
