The new system will be implemented from the beginning of the next academic year 2007-2008.

Sources in the ministry said the new system would replace the previous practice of confidential evaluation of performance of teachers and administrators.

He pointed out that in the previous system, a teacher or an administrator would come to know about his performance only after termination of service.

One of the sources said the ministry had received many complaints from teachers who accused the inspection department of colluding with school administrations to terminate the services of teachers despite satisfactory performance.

Mohammed Al Khamiari, director of the Department of Inspection in the Ministry of Education, said the new system will be transparent and there won’t be any scope of controversy.

In reaction to the system of transparency, Obaid Al Qaoud, director of Umm Al Quwain Education Zone, emphasised that he was among those who, several years ago, had called for performance reports to identify the strengths and weaknesses of teachers and administrators.

He added that the new system would be based on credibility and transparency between teachers and the school administrations.

Fawzia Hassan, director of Sharjah Education Zone, said the new system would end the suffering of many teachers who were caught between the inspection department and the school administration.

Mariam Obaid Al Gharbi, director of Al Abraq School in Umm Al Quwain, said the performance reports would give an opportunity to teachers and administrators to know the real level of their performance without any ambiguity.
