(MENAFN - Arab News) The shoura council has requested that the technical and vocational training corporation (tvtc) halt the opening of new colleges of excellence until evaluation studies have been conducted on the quality of graduates who had completed their courses at these colleges.

the request was made during a meeting held in riyadh on tuesday to discuss the corporation's 2013 annual report.

the education and scientific research committee at the council also suggested reviewing measures taken by the tvtc to deal with the growing number of dropouts from its institutions.

several members criticized the tvtc for its inability to benefit from its past experiences to rectify problems.

the committee also demanded that the tvtc come up with study programs tailored for students with special needs.

members asked pointedly about the tvtc's contribution toward ending the unemployment issue in the kingdom.

a member stressed that the tvtc received more than sr6 billion in financing equal to the total fund for four universities.

he criticized the tvtc's attempt to blame the shortage of funds for its woes. it further stressed that 11080 graduates of tvtc establishments are now unemployed.

a member also called for close coordination between the tvtc and the ministry of higher education.

meanwhile the shoura council has approved a proposal to conduct more studies on a draft bill for freedom of information.

the proposal was made by member faiz al-shahri and the council meeting was chaired by its president sheikh abdullah al-asheikh.

the council took the decision after discussing a report drafted by the council's committee for transportation communication and information technology on a draft bill seeking to regulate the right for information and the regulation governing information that cannot be disclosed.

the bill makes it obligatory on public establishments to supply information that are held back by them. if adopted the bill will elevate the status of the kingdom internationally in terms of right for information and support for principles of expression transparency media and scientific investigation the al-jazirah newspaper reported.
