Following yesterday's announcement that 47 schools would be prohibited from admitting Emiratis, His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi reiterated that the emirate of Sharjah would be taking control of the supervision of its schools.

The decree sent out by the UAE's Ministry of Education, announced that schools in Sharjah, Ajman and the Northern Emirates that had been identified as Weak or Very Weak, would no longer be able to register or re-register Emirati students.

His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Ruler of Sharjah said:

"We had ordered the transfer of supervision of private education schools in Sharjah from the Ministry of Education to the Sharjah government five months ago, and we will be taking the necessary measures to get this order implemented."

Dr Sheikh Sultan also reassured the private school owners, management and parents whose children are studying in one of the affected schools, saying they would be taken care of.

A special board of international education experts in Sharjah has also been announced. This board will be evaluating and enhancing education at all private schools in the emirate.

Dr Sheikh Sultan said:

"This board is working under my own guidance in order to promote education. The board will be taking care of everything happening in the classroom in terms of evaluating the teacher and the teaching methodology."
