Qatar's K-12 Education Reform Has Achieved Success in Its Early Years. Research Brief
Larson, Judy
RAND Corporation
To evaluate progress made in the first years of Qatar's implementation of K-12 education reform, RAND analyzed data from school-level observations, national surveys, and national student assessments. The study found that students in the new, Independent schools were performing better than those in Ministry schools, and there was greater student and parental satisfaction. Independent school teachers reported increased opportunities for professional development. However, much work remains because most students are still not meeting the new, higher curriculum standards [This research brief describes work done within RAND Education under the auspices of the RAND-Qatar Policy Institute and documented in "Implementation of the K-12 Education Reform in Qatar's Schools (Gail L. Zellman, Gery Ryan, Rita Karam, Louay Constant, Hanine Salem, Gabriella Gonzalez, Nate Orr, Charles A. Goldman, Hessa Al-Thani, and Kholode Al-Obaidli). For this report, see ED507320.]
