A new school model that will offer education for free has been announced in the UAE. Taking to Twitter, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, said the ‘Ajyal (generation) Schools’ model will target around 14,000 students.
The new model for government schools will be implemented from academic year 2022-23 in partnership with the private sector.
The new education model will be based on students, teachers and parents “as three main factors that will play a fundamental role in providing support and making all education projects in the country a success".
The Emirates Schools Establishment has selected a group of schools in various regions of the country in the first year of the project. It will be operated and managed by educational service providers who have “long experience in the field of international curricula in the country”.
Sarah bint Yousif Al Amiri, Minister of State for Public Education and Advanced Technology, said the government will bear “students’ fees and all operating expenses”
Al Amiri revealed that ‘partnership contracts’ will be signed with parents within the new schools.
This will help build “greater cooperation” between families and schools in evaluating the educational level of students.
