Education in the UAE
The UAE has just set up a new council to upgrade education in the country, after educational authorities in Dubai gave schools in the city a bad report card.

There are close to 200 schools in Dubai, the Abu Dhabi Educational Zone boasts close to 140 schools, Sharjah has 74 private schools, and the UAE currently contains 58 universities in total. The government has separate bodies to deal with the educational institutions in each emirate, and they provide regulations for these institutions.
Increasing fees have been a constant complaint in the country. Earlier this year, Dubai’s Knowledge and Development Authority conducted a study through which they found that 50 percent of parents in the emirate spend 6 to 15 percent of their income on education, and 30 percent spend more than 15 percent. The KHDA found that, on average, Dubai families spend AED2,711 a month on education.
According to a report released by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry in late 2008, school fees in the city range from AED3,000 to AED58,000 per year.
