DUBAI: A new policy framework aimed at promoting greater inclusion in Dubai’s private education sector was announced on Thursday by Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).

Providing information on procedures and standards necessary for improving inclusive education in Dubai, the “Inclusive Education Policy Framework” was announced at an event hosted at Zayed University.

Sheikh Mansour Bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Higher Committee on the Rights of People of Determination, said, “The UAE Constitution has established education as an acquired right for every citizen. The launch of the inclusive education policy comes in line with the national policy directives of the UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to empower people of determination with the aim of building an inclusive society free from all obstacles.”

The policy framework was developed under the leadership of The Executive Council of Dubai through its “My Community A City for Everyone” initiative as part of the collaborative efforts of the Higher Committee on the Rights of People of Determination. Through its leadership on the inclusive education taskforce, KHDA has collaborated with other government partners to develop Dubai’s inclusive education policy.

Sheikh Mansour said, “Education is a top priority and by creating equal educational opportunities for all we will contribute to the abilities of our young learners and help develop the country in line with future aspirations that aim to make Dubai and UAE a model nation.”

Dr. Abdulla Al Karam, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Director-General of KHDA, said, “The new framework aligns with strategic plans and initiatives aimed at making Dubai a fully cohesive and inclusive society as part of the Dubai Disability Strategy. Our aspiration to be a fully inclusive city by 2020 will be strengthened by the new guidelines.
