All the Arabic medium schools – government and private – have been given a period of three years with effect from the next academic year to amend their curriculums so as to be in line with the new concepts of education, says a report published in the local Arabic daily Arrayah. Quoting a circular issued by the Ministry of Education, the report said that the schools have to fall in line with the curriculum standards and syllabuses presently being followed by the independent schools or it should be in accordance with the national curriculum of Britain, North Wales and Ireland. The circular issued by the department of private education stated that the Arabic medium schools have also the option of adapting the international baccalaureate curriculum. They however have to retain the courses on Arabic language and Islamic Studies and the history of Qatar as stipulated by the Supreme Council for Education. They have also to pay special attention to students who have learning difficulties and focus equally on academic work and extra-curricular activities. Some schools have already switched over to the new curriculum and are giving special attention to Arabic and English languages besides mathematics and the sciences as taught in the independent schools, says the report.
