New model to boost public education

Source:  www.zawya.com

Abu Dhabi The Abu Dhabi Education Council (Adec) is developing a new school model (NSM) in efforts to improve teaching quality, learning environment, school leadership and parental involvement across public schools.

Al Raha beachPrincipals and vice-principals, who play a key role in the success of the NSM journey and the Kafa’ah Programme, were invited on Thursday to a presentation by Adec Director General Dr Mugheer Khamis Al Khaili on the new initiatives at Al Raha Beach Theatre.

The Kafa’ah Programme defines a range of Adec projects aimed at enhancing the performance of public schools and in turn improving the quality of learning — driving the implementation of the NSM.

Key areas under the Kafa’ah programme include the provision of new schools and facilities, Public Private Partnership (PPP) phase-out, and the development of new policies that will improve efficiency while maintaining quality.

“PPP is an initiative which was designed to use the expertise of private school operators to enhance public school operations. The initiative has been successful in bringing about rapid improvements in public schools over the past five years including improvements in attainment levels, improved quality of school leadership and teaching.

Facilities

“The schools are now ready for the PPP completion and will be provided with ongoing support to ensure a smooth transition. They are capable of running independently,” said Al Khaili.

Keeping in mind the fact that various schools across the emirate of Abu Dhabi are under-utilised, lack modern facilities and infrastructure needed to deliver high-quality education to students, Al Khaili declared that “Adec’s schools strategy involves renovating schools and building new schools with improved Information Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructure and sports facilities”.

Twenty-three new schools are planned for the emirate, of which 20 are expected to be ready by the beginning of the academic year 2011/2012 and three by the beginning of the second term of the same year.
