The Saudi Ministry of Education has issued a strict warning stating the following: “It’s forbidden for male and female children to mingle in private and foreign schools that accepted males as students in their primary classes. Therefore, these schools must totally separate [male students] from female students, whether in facilities, playgrounds or toilets.”

I will not talk about the ministry’s curriculum here. But I will talk about the concept which the ministry of education insists to instill as a solid concept in education. It’s the concept of preventing males in private and foreign schools from mingling with females of the same age, considering it’s Haram (prohibited in Islam).
