40% of Saudi Arabia’s international schools forecast to go bust by 2019

An international education chief has predicted a drop in the number of international schools in the Kingdom and the closure of about 40 percent of these schools by the end of 2018,

owing to the low financial returns and high operating expenses.



Ziad Al-Rahma, vice chairman of the National Committee for International Education, said because of the decrease in the number of students by more than 50 percent, some international school owners had to cut periodic expenditures by 60 percent and dispense with 20 percent of the teaching staff, according to Al-Watan Saudi newspaper.

Al-Rahma stressed that there has been no change in the fees of international schools, despite the drop in the number of students by half.

There are several reasons for this fall, such as the difficulty of the curriculum.
