Abu Dhabi Agrees to Launch New Schools with Annual Fees Starting From AED 20K

 

The Abu Dhabi Executive Committee has agreed to a pitch to launch new schools, in joint venture with the private sector, with annual fees ranging between AED20,000-30,000 ($5,444-8,167).
The plan was disclosed during a gathering of the committee, which was presided over by chairman Jassim Mohammed Buatabh Al Zaabi, as reported.
The new model, proposed by Dr Ali Rashid Al Nuaimi, chairman of the Department of Education and Knowledge, is part of the Abu Dhabi Development Accelerators Programmes, launched by Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.
More information about the new public-private partnership on education will be announced in the coming weeks, WAM said, adding that a pilot project for the new model will be launched in the next school year.
Officials said the new model for schools in Abu Dhabi is expected to contribute to “raising education capacity, with very reasonable expenses for citizens and residents”.
Last week, neighbouring Dubai announced a freeze on all private school fees for 2018-2019, “in order to reduce the financial burden on parents”.
