Abu Dhabi schools win praise of Chechen Republic minister

Chechen Republic's education minister says his country could learn from Abu Dhabi's school system.

The Chechen Republic's minister of education praised Abu Dhabi's school system after visiting two schools this week.

Anzor Muzaev went to one private and one public school on his visit, the Abu Dhabi Education Council (Adec) says.

"I like the design and atmosphere in the classrooms," he said. "It is schools like these that encourage children to look forward to returning back to school and spending time there."

Mr Muzaev said the Chechen Republic could learn from Adec as it "incorporates an international educational system in a peaceful Islamic culture".
