Saudi Arabia has decided to sack all expatriate English language teachers from its public schools within ongoing plans to nationalize teaching jobs.
Newspapers said the Gulf Kingdom would not renew the job contracts for all expatriate English language teachers in its more than 10,000 government schools from the next academic year and that they would be replaced by Saudis.
“The government will not extend the job contracts for all foreign English language teachers in the next scholastic year as part of Saudization of teaching jobs in the country,” Okaz Arabic language daily said, quoting education officials.
“Some of the expatriate mathematics teachers would also be replaced, particularly those whose performance has been found to be low.”
