The quality of a school is sometimes measured by how happy the students are and in Dubai students are happy. According to new data revealed by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), students in Dubai’s private schools have reported high levels of wellbeing and happiness.
For the first time ever, teachers and school staff were also covered as part of the wellbeing survey. More than 13,000 teachers, principals, school administrators, and support staff in Dubai schools shared their insights in a separate [email protected] Wellbeing Survey.
Dr Abdulla Al Karam, Director General of KHDA, said: “The results told us that 95% of adults in schools are thriving or functioning. Adults got the highest wellbeing scores around their own individual strengths, then the strengths of their team, followed by the strengths of their organisation. Schools and teachers should use the results of the wellbeing survey to share their strengths and focus on areas of improvement.”
