His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, said on Monday "we are working to improve the education process in Sharjah not only in form but also in content."
Talking during an intervention via the Direct Line Programme broadcast live on Sharjah Radio, His Highness Ruler of Sharjah revealed the formation of an international Supervisory Educational Authority to supervise and improve all aspects of the educational process in private schools in the Emirate, he said: "This body is working under my personal guidance to improve education, and will take care of everything going on in the classroom of the teacher evaluation and methods of teaching."
“However, this educational authority consists of international experts, who are going to work towards raising the educational standards, taking care of all the students-teachers’ behaviour, teaching methods, and the evaluation systems,” Sheikh Sultan continued.
His Highness added, “The issue of the Ministry of Education raised a lot of confusion, and for Sharjah we have taken a decision to transfer direct supervision to education 5 months ago. The Emirate is currently taking the necessary measures to implement this decision."
Sheikh Dr. Sultan asked people to cooperate and have faith in the decision makers and the decision itself, and reassured that they were in safe hands.
