SANA'A – Sept. 14- The Education Office in the capital shut down 24 private schools for violations including the non-renewal of licenses and working contrarily to the private education law.

The private education law stipulates that buildings should be in a frame similar to public schools and not apartments and small houses.

It is worth noting that there are hundreds of private schools scattered in the capital and its suburbs that have no official permissions and use apartments and houses owned by influential persons. These schools never provide quality education.

Additionally, there are several foreign private schools under renowned names that are established by investors interested in material gains at the expense of offering quality education.
