  1. Hi,
    I struggling to find information if home schooling is legal in Kuwait.
    We are planning to relocate there but we would like to continue in home schooling.

    Can you please advise, where we can find more information about this matter.

    Thank you in advance.



    1. So far there’s no written law regarding homeschooling in Kuwait.

      Homeschooling is not mentioned in the Education in Kuwait Wikipedia info, and Kuwait is also not mentioned in this blog post, Which countries have banned homeschooling at http://www.examiner.com/article/which-countries-have-banned-homeschooling.

      It’s really up to your family’s personal choice. We’re expatriates in Kuwait and we feel that homeschooling our children is the best choice for our children’s education.
