New Indian school to open in Dubai

Sep 24 2013, 5:52am CDT | by IANS

Dubai, Sep 24 (IANS) A new Indian school is going to come up in Dubai next year with an intake capacity of 3,000 students.

Dubai, Sep 24 — A new Indian school is going to come up in Dubai next year with an intake capacity of 3,000 students.

The Credence High School will follow India's Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) curriculum and initially accept first phase registration from kindergarten one to grade seven and later up to grade 12, local media reported Tuesday.

Annual fees in this school will range from 15,000 dirhams ($4,083) to 29,000 dirhams.

Premium schools in Dubai charge fees in the range of 20,000 dirhams to as much as 100,000 dirhams.

According to reports, Dubai-based healthcare major DM Healthcare chairman Azad Moopen, UAE-based investment company Jaleel Holdings managing director Sameer Mohammed and Nalapad Group overseas managing director Abdulla Nalapad Ahmed will develop the school at a cost of 50 million dirhams.

"We want to build a school where parents have a say in the way the school is structured and developed," Khaleej Times quoted Moopen as saying.

"Their feedback will form the core DNA of the school and it will help shape the learning and teaching."

Admissions will be open in November, 2014, and recruitment for teaching jobs will also begin during the same period.

Senior teaching staff for the school have already been recruited from India.

"We have travelled all across north India to find some of the best educators for our school and we will shortly announce the academic core of our school," Moopen said.

All modern facilities such as a library with a museum ambience, IT rooms, dance and drama hall with wooden flooring, indoor auditorium and sports facilities featuring a tennis court, badminton court and an athletic-sized swimming pool will be provided in the school.

Sports facilities will also include a FIFA-approved football pitch.

The school's promoters will reportedly build a chain of Indian schools across the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

There are around two million expatriate Indians in the UAE.

Study: Networks Bury Own Poll Results to Protect Obama

Sep 9 2014 1:09pm CDT | Source: Big Government

According to a study by The Media Research Center, the three big broadcast networks are not only ignoring President Obama's cratering approval numbers, to protect him from that news, the nets are going so far as to bury their own polls. Despite commissioning 15 polls this year to measure the president's approval ratings, the MRC found that the network's evening broadcasts only reported twice on the results.   As an example, although the network has commissioned 5 ...
