Only three schools out of 53 rated 'outstanding' in latest round of inspections.
Almost a quarter of Bahraini schools reviewed in the latest round of inspections have been deemed ‘inadequate’ by the Quality Assurance Authority for Education and Training (QAEET).
The results, released on Monday, show only three schools out of the 53 that were evaluated were rated ‘outstanding’. Sixteen were deemed to be ‘good’ while 22 were ‘satisfactory’.
Girls’ schools scored better than boy’s schools and accounted for all the outstanding grades, according to the results on the QAEET website.
At the same time, eight universities and 10 vocational institutions were evaluated by the education authority.
Only two universities were given a ‘confidence’ rating, while two were said to have ‘limited confidence’ and two with ‘no confidence’. Two were ungraded.
Meanwhile, two out of the 10 vocational colleges were seen to be ‘good’, five were ‘satisfactory’ and three were ‘below satisfactory’.
To date, 200 educational establishments have been reviewed by the QAAET and the results published since June last year, according to the Gulf Daily News.
This is really not possible. Just read the daily news papers and you will see how great all the schools are especially the private ones that charge more than what it would cost for a good University education in the USA or Canada. While school administrators and owners keep patting themselves on the back for how well they have done ...financially that is!
