Twenty-eight public schools in UAE to become private

The aim is to pass on experiences and diversify options for parents 

Dubai, March 06, 2023: About 28 public schools in the UAE will be outsourced to “experienced professionals” in the private sector for three years, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai has announced. 

“The aim is to pass on experiences and diversify options for parents,” he Tweeted.  

The announcement has come after the UAE Cabinet approved the operational model of Al Ajyal Schools. 

The UAE national curriculum and American curriculum are combined in this model, which was introduced last year. While subjects like mathematics, physics and others will be taught using the American curriculum, Arabic language, Islamic education, moral education and social studies will be managed and supervised by the UAE Schools. 

Ten schools had adopted the model last year, while eight new schools will implement the model in the next academic year 2023-24 and ten new schools will be added in the academic year 2024-25.
