Emirati teachers reluctant to join Sharjah schools

Emirati teachers reluctant to join Sharjah schoolsSharjah, March 26: Emirati citizens account for only four percent of the teachers in Sharjah, while "non-national" teachers dominate the scene. The trend shows the reluctance of Emiratis to join the teaching profession, a study has said.

The study titled "Psychological Trends of UAE Educator towards Teaching" was authored by Amna Mohammed Al Rashid, head of training and development at Sharjah Educational Zone.

It noted that the number of national principals and educational staff were on decline over the last four years, falling 16 percent in 2011/2012 over 2008/2009. The figure remained stable in 2009/2010 to 2011/2012.

As for national teachers, the study said, their number sank 36 percent in 2009/2010, 16 percent in 2010/2011 and nine percent in 2011/2012.

"The trend confirmed the reluctance of Emiratis to join the teaching profession," the study said.

The study called on the ministry of education to address the challenge by conducting regular assessment of the learning reality, paying proper attention to the learning process itself and overhauling the civil service legislations to attract more nationals into the profession. (IANS)
