It is very surprising to note that none of the Indian or Pakistani schools got the Outstanding rating by KHDA. Especially as this list includes the schools run by the famous educators of the country, who owns several schools within UAE and also the Indian School series directed under the guidance of Embassies and consulates. What has happened to adherence of standard set by KHDA by these elite schools? Were they not prepared to match them or is it an eye opener to the readers that there exists several limitations and drawbacks which may or may not be complied upon by them as per the required regulations?. The detailed list of schools and their drawbacks, if any could be listed to reach the rating are eagerly awaited to get a clear picture for the parents.
