Is it the quality of the professional teachers or principal that comprise the faculty? Is it the methodology of teaching used, the inclusion of sports programs or the spiritual and moral development of the students?
Few educators have reviewed the evidence from research that has contributed to the development of the best schools and that bring forth a supply of open-minded, healthy and enthusiastic people into the society. However, a look at the inspection results recently released by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) in Dubai, most schools are not managed well, at least not in terms of productive teaching and student outcomes. In a survey conducted by KHDA, about 10% of the schools in Dubai are running well with a satisfactory level of teaching, learning, and management (Sambidge, 2009). This is a grievous situation and therefore important that research is conducted in order to explore the reasons for such a condition in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
This research question aims to find how decisions related to the curriculum, teaching methods, classroom scheduling, discipline policy, the introduction of new courses or subjects are made in UAE schools. The question seeks to understand how the decision making the role of the school management, school principal, teachers, students, and student’s families interface. The data will clarify whether and how the participative decision is being used in schools.
This study will determine whether participation of the teachers in the decision-making process has to lead to the development of a better curriculum, better methodology, or better overall quality of teaching so that the students are able to experience higher achievement. The study will elaborate the impact of participative decision making on morale and satisfaction among teachers, motivation towards teaching and commitment to their jobs.

As America is increasingly becoming an eclectic mix of racially and ethnically diverse populations, the impact of this demographic change has started to become apparent in all walks of American life. More specifically, the objective of this paper is to enumerate the changes in educational procedures due to growing diversity in America.
They feel anger when they discover that those accountability systems are used unfairly-when they provide rewards or impose punishments. And when teachers learn they have little ability to change unfair accountability systems, they become alienated-passive-aggressive members of a community, acting as obstructionists for other new ideas.
It is focused on content or the core knowledge which most parents preferred to as the there r's - reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic. It is the acquisition of knowledge with the child being challenged to use the scope of that knowledge to formulate a reasoned conclusion or judgment.
Globalisation has a multi-dimensional impact on education. Economic growth and technological advancement of a nation depends upon the quality of its education. So, education can be considered as an investment to build a strong human capital. Several international organisations and treaties consider education as a service industry.
The author explains that in China, only professional athletic students are on the sports team. In the U.S., almost everybody plays at least one sport. American schools offer sports that almost every student can play for competition and fun. At his U.S. high school, he found out he couldn’t even try a lot of sports.
According to the report eople who use the concept of learning styles in learning and development recommend that teachers should regularly assess and evaluate the learning styles of their students and must be able to adapt their classroom methods which can fit with the learning style of a specific individual. Various psychologists and academicians have tried to incorporate learning style.
