Several sources have contacted us and indicated that three teachers are out already. The details differ a bit – one tells us that one teacher was fired and two quit, while another tells us that two were fired and one quit. Either way, we can confirm that three are gone. Two of these teachers are from the high school math department, which you may remember had not hired all of its positions for the year.

This means that the HS Math department is three teachers short. We here at The American School of Kuwait Reviews are very curious as to how all of those classes are being covered, since our sources tell us that the HS Math Department has had unfilled vacancies for several years in a row and that many of the teachers that are left in the department are being asked to cover a large amount of the slack, leaving them little planning time.

We have heard from one parent expressing extreme displeasure that their student doesn’t have a math teacher currently. We would love to hear from more stakeholders about that current situation. Let’s hope that ASK can find some people to plug the holes, or they are going to have to get crazy and have their history teachers start teaching math.

  1. I seem to recall the 2015-16 school year starting this way for the HS math department. Some lady didn’t show up. Of course, Bikowski (principal at the time) fires her three weeks after she showed up. But that’s ASK right there: fire without planning ahead.

  3. So when Mike goes to the GRC fair in November, will he be recruiting for both the 18/19 and 19/20 school years?

  4. Your last line would be funny, except that a history teacher is now chair of the mathematics department. None of the overworked math teachers wanted it.

    1. If you’re going to write and/or comment, you should get all the information first. The chair of the math department is, in fact, a certified math teacher and is well qualified for the position.
