Schools in ?Dubai better teaching standards.

Dubai Teaching standards and transport safety have improved in Dubai schools, an inspection report said.

oGood and outstanding teaching in public schools has risen significantly from 34 per cent to 48 per cent,o according to the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) report.

The second annual report published by the the Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau (DSIB) tracks the progress of schools since the inspections were introduced in 2008.

In American curriculum schools, almost a quarter of all lessons were taught unsatisfactorily in 2008-09. These schools have shown good progress with unsatisfactory teaching reduced to 8 per cent in 2009-10, the report said.

Dropout rate

In state-run schools, the dropout rate of 22 per cent of male students, and 14 per cent of female students, is twice that in other developed countries, the findings showed.

The report suggests that though the safety standards in school buses have improved, the procedures for dealing with child protection issues are found to be weak in many private schools.

Policies and procedures for health and safety are poorly implemented or non-existent in some schools, the report said.
