The Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) has taken stringent measures with 24 low performing private schools across the Emirate of Abu Dhabi who have not shown overall areas of improvement throughout the last three inspection visits.
This comes in line with ADEC’s mission to offer quality education to all students while ensuring a fruitful future for a generation of youth.
ADEC has taken this measure for the very first time in order to ensure student’s rights are reserved as per the Private Schools and Quality Assurance (PSQA) sectors regulations.
Dr. Ali Al Nuaimi, ADEC’s Director General emphasised that as per the regulations of private schools in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, all necessary arrangements amongst low performing school will be taken until these schools manage to elevate their overall level of performance in par with the quality education aspired by the nation.
Before taking this measure, some of these schools have already received up to two warning letters as well as a block on any new student admission. They were also updated and informed on the exact inspection findings and suggestions, with emphasis on the strengths and weaknesses in each school, and on which areas require further improvement.
ADEC has conducted various visits to these particular schools in order to estimate the level of improvement in each school as part of the education council’s plan to encourage partnership, quality education and excellence.
Engineer Hamad Al Dhaheri, PSQA Executive Director explained that as part of ADEC’s trust in private schools and in efforts to support those schools, ample time has been granted in order to improve their overall performance standards.
ADEC urges parents to select schools that offer quality education for their children before deciding to enroll them in a private school. There are plenty of affordable schools that offer quality education in the Emirate.
ADEC’s inspection reports and grades are posted on the websites of both the council and the school for transparency purposes.
