JEDDAH: An official of the Charitable Society for Holy Qur’an Memorization has blamed the Ministry of Education for not producing sufficient number of qualified Saudi teachers for the Qur’an memorization institutions.

“The three-year grace period granted to Qur’an memorization societies to Saudize their institutions will not be enough because sufficient number of teachers are not forthcoming,” Yazeed Abu Malha, a member of the board of directors of the charity in Jeddah said on Monday. He was speaking on the sidelines of a meeting about the society’s plan to award a prize to the best Qur’an memorization society in the Kingdom.

The shortage of teachers is further compounded by the unwillingness of qualified teachers to work in its institutions because of the poor pay and lack of opportunities for promotions unlike in other areas of teaching, he added.
