Fee hike limit set for Dubai private schools


DUBAI – Up to 90 percent of private schools in Dubai will not be allowed to increase school fees by more than 2.07 percent, according to new rules by the Dubai Executive Council.

The council on Monday approved a new framework to regulate school fees, as submitted by the
Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).

The framework is expected to take effect in the school year 2019-2020.

“Our ultimate goal is to improve an educational system in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, aiming to create a conducive and competitive educational environment,” said Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of the Executive Council.

Under the new school fees framework, no private school will be allowed to raise fees if its rating falls in the annual inspections. of the Dubai School Inspection Bureau.

Private schools that maintain their ranking upon evaluation will be allowed to increase their fees based on the education cost index. GAD/Expat Media
