National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Ali Al-Ghanim said on Monday that Democratic and human values should be taught to children since early years. Al-Ghanim said at the opening of the 3rd round of Student Parliament that “Today’s session is a step in this direction.” The top legislator added that the Student Parliament aims to give first-hand experience in parliamentary work and listen to students’ points of view regarding the legislative activities and tasks.

Al-Ghanim highlighted the importance of the initiative on promoting democracy and respect of different points of view. He added that the session was also a chance for the MPs to listen to the views of students on several issues. Al-Ghanim announced that the students will discuss a number of bills on the development of the educational process and the outcome of their deliberations would be referred to the parliamentary Educational Affairs Committee. “As I said before on numerous occasions, one of the most important structural problems that would weaken any society is the widening gap between the generations. “I am talking here about the distance that turns slowly into a state of isolation and alienation between generations so that the equation becomes either that young people speak but their voice is not heard or that adults speak up but no one comprehends its implications and meaning; and when these gaps widen and the common language is lost, we turn into isolated islands,” he stressed. He said “I always emphasize here that the idea is to create a forum through which we listen to this wide and important social segment of society and to their voice rather than having them hear us”.

Al-Ghanim said the Student Parliament was deemed a channel for students to voice their views and thoughts in line with constitutional and parliamentary regulations. Addressing a Student Parliament session held at the National Assembly (parliament), Al-Ghanim said: “We have not created this (student) parliament out of showing-off. The Student Parliament has no parallel in neighboring countries.” He added that the National Assembly’s members spend nearly four hours with students as a sign of respect and appreciation for them and their views.

The speaker voiced much pleasure at the magnifi cent way the students pursued to express their opinions during the session. The Student Parliament will convene again next year. Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education Dr Bader Al-Essa asserted here on Monday that education enjoys continuous and growing support by His Highness the Amir, His Highness the Crown Prince and His Highness the Prime Minister as being the most important means of achieving sustainable development.

Al-Essa expressed delight in a speech during the opening of the third Student Parliament because educational issues are being discussed by individuals and state institutions of the Kuwaiti society, stressing that everyone is interested and eager to see education assume a higher status through coming up with proposals that would serve and elevate the educational work. He added that the students’ suggestions, such as the establishment of public universities and caring for gifted talents will be the concern of all sectors of the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Higher Education.

He expressed his confi dence that the Student Parliament session would achieve its objectives and be successful. He explained that the deepening sense of loyalty to the homeland and the implementation of democracy practically as well as training students on how to deal with their issues and exercising their right to freedom of expression objectively is the best way to promote the principles of the democratic system in the minds of students.
