Lifting of school fee freeze in UAE highlights “business of education”

“The proposed lifting of the freeze of school fees in Dubai is a moment most parents will have been dreading, even if they knew such a move was inevitable. However, it also highlights the unusual situation of education in the UAE. On the one hand, fee-paying schools dominate the market and are attended by nearly 90 per cent of students in the emirate. Yet, on the other, they are overwhelmingly for-profit businesses, answerable to investors rather than either students or their parents.”
