There is a big difference in the education in the UAE between the past and present in many aspects. The education in the past and present is different in subjects, teachers, classroom, students, schools, transportation, and financial support.
The education in the past differs from the education in the present in many aspects. In the past, the education was very simple. There were no universities, schools, and teachers. The teacher was a person who was called Al-Mutawa. Al-Mutawa was teaching the boys and girls only three subjects which are: reading, reciting the Holy Quran, and math. Al-Mutawa was paid by boys’ and girls’ parents. Actually, they paid to Al-Mutawa by giving him food, clothes…etc. The Al-Mutawa’s house was the class where the boys and girls were learnt. Also, the boys and girls did not have to attend everyday in order to learn in the past.
The education in the present differs from the past in many things. There are two reasons that lead to the developments in education in the UAE which are: discovery of oil in the UAE and unity of the seven emirates in 1971. Nowadays, there are universities, schools, teachers, institutes, and colleges. There are many universities in the UAE covering most of the disciplines and majors such as engineering, arts, sciences, law, business, architecture…etc. Also, these universities provide opportunity for the students who want to pursue the postgraduate studies such as master and PhD. In the present, the government attracts the qualified teachers and professors to teach different subjects such as English language, Arabic language, history, geography, chemistry, biology, psychology …etc in the schools and universities. The government is supporting the education nowadays. It builds the modern schools, labs, universities, and institutes to provide an appropriate environment for studying. Also, it provides the adequate transportation for students to facilitate their movements and safety.
