I’m shocked at school at­ten­dances in Ra­madan

7 Days in Dubai - - COMMUNITY -

I have been ask­ing around and I am ut­terly shocked at the de­crease in numbers of stu­dents at many schools in Dubai dur­ing the month of Ra­madan. I can never un­der­stand why some par­ents stop send­ing their kids in or­der to stay at home and fast. I can never un­der­stand those teach­ers who en­cour­age their stu­dents not to show up - they should be ashamed of call­ing themselves teach­ers. Where is our so­ci­ety’s re­spon­si­bil­ity here? I com­mend those prin­ci­pals at schools that don’t hand out the re­port cards un­til you at­tend up un­til the last day - th­ese are the true ed­u­ca­tors. Former teacher UAE
