Dubai, Feb 28 (ANI): Two Indian schools in Dubai have been awarded an 'outstanding' rating for the first time by the emirates' education authority.
The Indian High School and Modern High School were rated outstanding in a report based on the inspection of Indian and Pakistani schools in Dubai by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).
The report, made public on Monday, showed that both schools improved their rating from good to outstanding, while two others declined, going from good to acceptable, while the remaining schools retained last year's rating.
The report pointed out that more Indian pupils are getting better education now, with over 16,230 pupils attending schools getting a better rating. But the pace of improvement of Indian schools has slowed down significantly, Gulf News reports.
"Alarmingly, many children with special educational needs may be going unnoticed at some of the Indian schools as these schools lack understanding of the definition of special needs in the broader sense," Jameela Al Muhairi, Chief of the Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau (DSIB) at KHDA, said.
"For instance, the principal of a school with thousands of pupils told us there were four or five such children in the school, But this turned out to be wrong as experts participating in the inspection process identified more pupils during their interaction with the pupils," she added.
Muhairi urged the schools to use DSIB guidelines to identify students who demonstrate learning difficulties or require further challenges more effectively. (ANI)
