Education is a constitutional right of every citizen. Article 17 of the UAE's Constitution stresses the fundamental role of education in the progress of society and makes education compulsory at primary stages. It ensures that all girls and boys receive equitable and quality primary and secondary education, completely free. The Constitution makes education free of charge at all stages for citizens throughout the UAE. It also maintains that the government should set necessary schemes for spreading education and eliminating illiteracy.
Providing a first-rate education system is a pillar of the National Agenda in line with the UAE Vision 2021. One of the National Agenda’s targets is that UAE students must be the best in the world in reading, mathematics, science, and have a strong knowledge of the Arabic language. These are the key performance indicators to achieve a First-Rate Education System.
The National Strategy for Higher Education 2030 aims to provide future generations with necessary technical and practical skills to drive the public and private economy. It will prepare a generation of Emirati professionals to sustain growth in vital sectors such as a knowledge economy, entrepreneurship, and the overall development of the UAE's labour market.
