Investigation: Security interventions disturb the education system in the UAE in spite of attempts by the regime to improve the image

The UAE regime has repeatedly attempted to improve the image of the educational system in the country in light of the disturbing system that suffers from government shortcomings and suspicious security interventions.

The Cabinet, chaired by Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, briefed the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai on the school system, which began to be implemented, during his meeting at the Presidential Palace in Abu Dhabi.

“During the race of nations towards prosperity, we believe in education. Investing in human development is the only investment that does not lose,” Ben Rashid said. “Our goal is to be the best in education globally.”

“The UAE school is a center of building the future. Our students are the leaders of UAE’s future. We need an educational system that doesn’t depend on memorization, but rather understanding, innovation and creativity in thinking,” Ben Rashid said stressed.

Education experts say that education in the country has been suffering from shortcomings that the government policies are the responsible for nearly two decades due to the constant stumble in the performance of ministers of education, educational plans, curricula and the working environment, in addition to the interference of the security service and the education system to the political and ideological polarization in the region. Education has become a field for amateurs in the country.

If any official had any idea, can would put it in the curriculum without subjecting to examination or technical and professional tests. Student have additional curricula in “Moral Education,” politics books and region conflicts. In their lessons, they are taught to glorify criminal governments, such as in Al-Sarab book, which criticizes the Islamic faith and the Prophet Muhammad, and glorifies autocrats such as Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and others.

Education experts confirm that the output of education in the UAE is still below the acceptable level. Large percentage of students are unable to read or write Arabic while they are more advanced in English, because of the emphasis on English language while neglecting the mother language. The concept of homeland has become linked to the security service, as in the curricula of national education. The security service imposes security programs on students rather than raising awareness programs of the dangers of bullying and bad behaviors.

It has become forbidden for teachers in the UAE to practice education without a license. And over the past two decades, international educational experiences have been cloned with the introduction of western teachers. However, Minister of Education Hussein Al-Hammadi continues to follow the principle of trial and error in preparing the educational plans and then canceling them after the months of application. In the same time there are schools in the state with no teachers of physics or mathematics.

In addition, teachers of vocational activities have been sent to a number of schools to teach mathematics and physics to cope with the shortage of teachers. All of which lead to questions about the educational outcomes of these conditions and this environment.
