MANAMA: Communities in troubled areas have been asked to take a stand against saboteurs to help prevent growing numbers of attacks on schools. The government can only do so much and parents must stress to their children the importance of abiding by the law and gaining good qualifications, says Education Minister Dr Majid Al Nuaimi.

He earlier confirmed security was being increased at government schools for a second time following 191 attacks in the last 12 months.

"We are in a situation in which elders are afraid to tell violent children to stop in fear they will be attacked, but community members could enforce security by showing real opposition to acts of sabotage and vandalism," said Dr Al Nuaimi.

"A stand against vandals and saboteurs has to be taken and the best chance of real achievement in that regard is having people discipline their children on the importance of abiding by the law and getting a degree, which in the end will provide them with good jobs."
