‘Most schools only satisfy proprietors wishes in reaping profits’
A report prepared by a British team contracted by the Ministry of Education about a year ago to evaluate performance of private schools revealed that the performance of 47 percent of foreign and bilingual schools in the country is extremely poor and a failure.
According to the report, most of these schools only satisfy wishes of the proprietors in reaping profits quickly which they prioritize over necessary educational activities. It states these schools which often claim to be academically excellent have very poor performance and 88 percent of bilingual schools are rated as such.
In addition, 65 percent of schools which follow British curriculum are unacceptable and 50 percent of those following the American curriculum were rated not satisfactory.
The report disclosed bilingual schools are not supposed to be called as such because they are using two totally different curricula, so they cannot train students to the level of desired excellence. It added these schools lack proper administrative leadership and some of the teachers do not have the required experience and competency to implement the curriculum appropriately.
