    Because their parents didn't pay their fees students were lured by a security guard promising a zoo trip and locked up without food , water or loo breaks for an entire school day !

    The school isn't named in the article but locally it is well known which one it was -
    PM me if you are applying for jobs as it's one which recruits in UK.

    Yes, times are hard, but one or two of our late payers are not hardship cases but peace-takers.
    Thanks for the good idea.
    I will not delegate this pleasant task to a security guard. It's a job for the Head.
    When the defaulting parents pay up, the teachers can have their salary and the brats can go home.

    This kind of thing is fairly normal practice in most Qatari schools (or those "international" schools with Qatari owners). What's all the big fuss about?
    Here in Doha, teachers are not actually locked up in rooms. They just cannot get another job without an NOC or leave Qatar without an exit visa.
