An explanation and examination of the five pillars of establishing a KS in the Arab World, as stated in the 2003 United Nations report, is carried out to study the possibility of creating a KS in the UAE. The present paper highlights the important roles teachers can perform to help students to become active members of the new society. (Contains 6 figures.)
