Bahrain approves new funds for education projects

03 February 2009

Bahrain’s Economic Development Board (EDB) has approved plans for a further BD20m ($53m) investment in education and training projects in the country.

The scheme is the latest initiative by the EDB to improve the skill levels of Bahrainis.

The EDB is also behind a new quality assurance body that is being formed to evaluate all schools and teachers in the country and issue reports to parents.

Kamal Ahmed, chief operating officer of the EDB, says “We are working hard to push ourselves to perform better, and we are starting with the teachers and the curriculum so that Bahrainis can become a leading force in improving productivity of businesses in the country, and then go on to manage businesses around the world.”
