I have seen plenty of dubious surveys, but this beats them all; its like polling Americans who have never left their state on whether the American healthcare system is the best in the world

UAE system of education scores high

Dubai: When it comes to quality of education, over half the students in the UAE believe theirs is better than that available in Western countries, a survey showed.

That confidence in their education system was shown in a poll aimed to show the strengths and weaknesses of educational systems in the Gulf, by gathering the views of 1,300 students from Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE.

Conducted by management consulting firm Booz & Co, it showed 57 per cent of students in the UAE believe their education system is “a little better or much better” than that available in Western countries.
The high percentage of student satisfaction with education in the UAE was based on several factors, including their trust in educational leaders, their satisfaction with English teaching in schools, and their positive views of public schools

In sharp contrast with other countries, public schools in the UAE were also viewed more positively than local or international private school types, specifically in the areas of relational trust, competency of fixed curriculum, and infrastructure

Re: Surveys...
No mention in the article of who commissioned the survey, I'm sure Booz and Co didn't do it for free...

Re: Surveys...
UAE education system is like Asian education; more about rote learning and passing exams than about fostering independent thinking , creativity, skepticism and rationalism.
