Private firms take on state high schools

ABU DHABI // Private companies will have a hand in the management of every state high school in the emirate when the new term starts next week, as part of the Abu Dhabi Education Council’s effort to turn around failing schools.

The schools will become part of the public-private partnership programme, a pilot initiative now in its fourth year. A total of 147 schools – roughly half of all state schools, primary and high, in the emirate – will be participating in the programme this autumn. Last school year, 118 state schools participated.
