Nine schools closed down in Dubai since 2008

Dubai's Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) has said that nine schools with low rankings have closed down in the last four years with seven of them deciding to close for failing to cope with the requirements of inspection and standards, Gulf News has reported. "While there is a strong link between the quality of education and the long-term investment returns of a school, it is the ultimately the school's performance that decides the way forward and together with the parents decide if the school will succeed or fall behind," said Mohammad Darwish, the chief of the Regulations and Compliance Commission at KHDA. This comes after GEMS Education's announcement that it will close Westminster School in Dubai in 2014, as it is not able to increase its fees as it received only an acceptable rating by the KHDA.
