When a school becomes qualified to announce its opening to admit students and accept tuition fees from the students, it should have completed the construction of school classrooms, laboratories and other facilities for students.

Therefore, a report carried in the Arabic daily Al Bayan on the establishment of four private schools and its announcement of opening the doors for admission and charging tuition fees prior to the completion of the required infrastructure amount to violation of the provision of the executive regulations of the Federal Act No. 28 of 1999 governing the private educational institutions.

On the one side, it may be said that the final touches to the required infrastructure and whole project completion could take place after the students are admitted. That is, to say, in the presence of the students, as the waiting time required for the project to be completed may reprieve the students from attending the classes for the full academic year.

On the other side, it may be said that the waiting time is a better option rather than admitting the students and then complete the project as this may adversely affect the overall development of the students. It could also cause panic and disturbance while students attend classes because the ongoing infrastructure work may affect the students concentration and work performance.

Whatever the logic, eventually, the rule of the law in this regard must be followed.
