Education in the UAE

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.

The UAE’s new education council will aim to improve the quality of education in public schools. The council will consist of heads of each emirate’s education zones, the director-general of the ministry and other senior ministry officials.

“The council will also follow up on execution of approved plans of each zone and study obstacles hindering the implementation of these plans,” Humaid Mohammed Obaid Al Qutami, the UAE Minister of Education heading the council, told Khaleej Times.

The Abu Dhabi government has also set up a council to standardize health and safety programs across public and private schools in the emirate. The council will audit the safety of school buildings, the effectiveness of firefighting systems and school facilities, among other things.

Meanwhile, Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) and the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (Rera) have signed an agreement to develop a rental index for schools and other education centers in Dubai. According to authorities, the new scheme, which will develop long-term rental contracts, will prevent private schools and investors from imposing “unjustified rent increases.”
