Arabic and Islamic education now compulsory subjects in private schools: MoEHE

By QLNews

The Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MoEHE) has issued the academic policy for the new academic year, making Arabic, Islamic education, and Qatari history compulsory subjects in private schools and kindergartens.

Moreover, the current academic policy is an update of the previous policy issued for the year 2019-2020.

The need to promote the national identity and religious values of children in private schools and kindergarten has led to developments in the academic policy.  

Furthermore, the new academic policy was sent to all private schools and kindergartens. The most important points of the updated version of the academic policy for compulsory subjects are as follows.

The need to teach two subjects - Arabic language and Islamic education - starting from pre-school (kindergarten and preparatory) in all private schools and kindergartens.

The need to teach the three compulsory subjects in all curricula and educational systems, in accordance with the sequence of classes.

Schools comply with the conditions and controls of the equation of grades (10, 11, 12) and the ministerial decision No. (11) for 2021.

The commitment of private schools to evaluate compulsory subjects for all classes - grade 1 to 12 - in all curricula and educational systems.

Great step indeed. Currently I have to get separate education for my children to learn Arabic, This will help a lot for the non Arab (like my) children to learn about Arabic as well as Muslim culture which will eventually help them to mix with local community.

A great step by MOEHE thanks to Qatar government giving us this apporunity to our children.

In all countries, France, Italy, germany, America, Russia, Japan etc it is mandatory to learn & talk in their national language you can not skip from it but in gulf countries it was not mandatory thanks Qatar giving us apporunity to learn Arabic making it mandatory.
