UAE paper hails KHDA’s role in ensuring quality education

ABU DHABI: A U.A.E. paper has said that it is a given that everyone wants quality education for their children and the U.A.E. s governments at federal and emirate level want to encourage their young people to grow up with the best schooling available so that they can contribute their best to the social and business life of the country.

“The many expatriate families resident in the U.A.E. share this aim and like to support the drive for quality,” said Gulf News in its editorial on Wednesday.

This is why Dubai s Knowledge and Human Development Authority, KHDA, has done well to publish regular statistics on the performance of schools in the emirate and by so doing, it has forced all school managements to recognise that they have to be part of the wider U.A.E. community.

“In the multi-cultural environment of Dubai, it is important that all schools work hard to offer their best in mainstream subjects like mathematics and sciences, as well as those subjects that bring young people in the emirate towards a closer understanding of the U.A.E,” concluded the paper.
