Bahrain plans education reforms


That was highlighted in a press conference held on Monday to announce the results of the school, vocational, training institutions, and higher education institutions reviews and of the first national examinations.

The results that are part of a report by the Quality Assurance Authority for Education and Training (QAAET), show that among 20 public and private schools reviewed, only four were rated good and 13 satisfactory, while three were deemed inadequate.

None of the schools evaluated were ranked outstanding. Two out of four higher education courses analysed received “no confidence” judgments, with the two others receiving limited confidence rulings.

Half of vocational institutions were rated as inadequate. In a statement QAAET’s chairman and Prime Minister’s Court Minister Shaikh Khalid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa highlighted that the situation is under control. He called upon concerned bodies to improve services to meet international standards.
