His Excellency Dr.
Ahmed Belhoul Al Falasi, Minister of Education, affirmed that the UAE, under
the directives of its wise leadership, has placed education among its top
priorities. This aligns with its strategic aspirations to achieve global
leadership and continue the path towards excellence in all development fields
through a modern futuristic educational system. The UAE believes that education
is the basis for qualifying generations capable of competition and
strengthening state leadership.
His Excellency said
that the education sector, on which the state has founded its comprehensive
development plan, carries the hope for a qualitative leap in various
development paths. Moreover, to continue the development process, we must
instill its value and importance in our students in public and private higher
education, as well as public and private schools. We must also prepare the
future generation using the best educational standards and provide them with
the latest sciences and knowledge, consolidate their moral values, and create
environments that motivate competition and creativity to achieve national goals
and ensure a prosperous future for our country.
In his speech on the
occasion of the beginning of the school year, His Excellency explained the
importance of strengthening the role of parents, families, and society, as they
share the responsibility of developing the students' minds and preparing future
generations. Furthermore, he wished everyone a successful school year, full of
giving and hard and fruitful work that contributes to achieving the national
educational vision, until our students become the best in the world, equipped
with science, knowledge, and 21st-century skills.
His Excellency Al
Falasi called on everyone to adhere to the precautionary measures to ensure
their health and safety, a top priority that all state institutions cooperate
to preserve. During the pandemic, the educational sector proved its ability to
face these challenges while continuing the educational process, developing a
smart learning system, qualifying teaching staff, and providing capabilities
and educational solutions, according to well-thought-out, systematic and
proactive plans. These plans and goals were supported by our infrastructure,
knowledge tools, positive experiences, and constructive cooperation between all
parties in the educational process and other state institutions.
