MOE changes: insider scoop :: An Emarati's Thoughts

An Emarati says he's got the scoop on what Shaikh Nahyan Al Nahyan has planned to shake up UAE government schools. The plan An Emarati outlines makes sense.

As is true anywhere (my comparison is with the U.S.) the greatest difficulty will be to make the plan work in the rural areas where there isn't competition, and it is difficult to attract the best teachers.

What I advocate for university-bound products of the government schools is a year or two of study at a prep school (where the prep schools are vying for students, and part of this vying is success in placing them in universities) before going on to university. But that won't address the problem of the disproportionate number of males who quit school before graduating high school.
