Teachers and principals pleased with new Adec regulations

New regulations for private schools have been well-received by administrators in the capital.

ABU DHABI // School leaders have lauded new private school regulations by the Abu Dhabi Education Council (Adec) as transparent, timely and beneficial for students, schools and parents.

Adec held its first wave of introductory workshops on the new regulations this week. Administrators from all private schools will receive training in the new regulations.

Amy Simmons, school director at the Al Nahda Girls National School, said the new rules will help improve conditions for private schools, while Charmaine Raghuraman, school principal at the Crescent International Private School, in Khalifa City A, added: "I can see a lot of transparency between Adec, parents and the school, all moving towards a focus on the students and progress; everything comes down to the student, the child is the focal point."
