Chang­ing school hours for Ra­madan is dis­rup­tive

7 Days in Dubai - - PUZZLES -

Dubai has schools which teach dif­fer­ent cur­ric­ula. The chil­dren study­ing in the Bri­tish Cur­ricu­lum sit their GCSE and A Level ex­ams dur­ing the months of May and June. Al­ter­ing school tim­ings for Ra­madan proves to be ex­tremely dis­rup­tive to their stud­ies. I hope some sort of so­lu­tion can be found be­fore Ra­madan moves to midterm, just when the main body of their re­vi­sion starts at school and their projects need to be com­pleted. I am sure that schools in Dubai in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the KHDA are quite ca­pa­ble of find­ing a so­lu­tion where the fu­ture of these young, hard work­ing stu­dents is not ad­versely im­pacted.
