MoE to hire 300 Kuwaiti women

Kuwaiti women security guards?

MoE to hire 300 Kuwaiti women:

KUWAIT CITY, Nov 5: Ministry of Education is on the verge of hiring more than 300 Kuwaiti women as security guards to work in the schools for girls, reports Al-Jarida daily.
The ministry’s assistant undersecretary for administrative affairs Aisha Al-Roudhan made the announcement and said the ministry will coordinate in that regard with the authority responsible for re-structuring the country’s workforce and a company that specializes in recruiting women security guards.

Al-Roudhan denied that the ministry is planning to recruit non-Kuwaitis from the Gulf or other Arab countries as female guards, except for special cases. She pointed out that the women security guards will start work in the next school year.

According to Al-Roudhan, application is open to Kuwaiti women holding high school certificate or its equivalent, between 30 and 45 years old. She noted the position will be financially rewarding with a monthly salary of KD 617 and holidays consistent with the regular school break in summer and spring. The women security guards will be expected to supervise the students inside the school premises and monitor them during break and other school activities.

Money isn't too bad but does anyone really think they will actually do the job? When I worked at the schools we couldn't get the teachers to watch the kids and now the "security guards" are supposed to do it?
