ADEC freezes admissions at low performing private schoolsJune 21, 2016, 3:15 pm GMT
The Abu Dhabi Education Council has frozen student admissions at 24 low performing schools in the emirate, the education regulator announced.
Some of the 24 schools have already received up to two warning letters as well as a block on any new student admissions. They were also updated and informed on the exact inspection findings and suggestions, with emphasis on the strengths and weaknesses in each school, and areas requiring further improvement.
According to ADEC's director general Dr Ali Al Nuaimi, "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".
As reported in April, more than 20,000 students in Abu Dhabi attend schools rated "weak" or "very weak" according to inspection results published by ADEC.
ADEC inspected 112 private schools during the current academic year, with the remaining to be inspected during the 2016/17 academic year.
There are currently 186 private schools with 238,632 students enrolled in Abu Dhabi.
