All the non-public schools in the country should abide by the regulations regarding licensing, construction of buildings, recruitment of teachers and the curricula, he said.

“The community schools are non-public schools. Hence, they would be classified as private schools that should be sponsored by an Emirati,” explained Al Suwaidi.
