Dubai girls’ public schools outperform boys’ schools

The Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau (DSIB) has announced that girls' public schools outperform the boys' schools in all the key subjects, Gulf News has reported. The gap in performance was highest in cycle 3, where the performance of only 27% of boys' schools is ranked as 'good' compared to 62% of girls' schools, the report said. Students' abilities in English, mathematics and science in between only 40% and 45% of public schools have improved a little over the last three years, but remained below international standards, DSIB said.
