- Education plays an important role in Saudi Arabia’s drive towards growth and development, evident in the key role it plays in the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, which is built around three primary themes – a vibrant society, a thriving economy and an ambitious nation.
- Several reforms in the sector have been introduced with hopes to “repair” an outdated system and provide quality education in the country. The primary education system dates back as early as the 1930s but has seen a significant transformation in recent years. Resonating with the government’s vision, parents are today emphasizing the need to provide their children with quality education, helping them become global citizens. This research discusses the decisive patterns of parents in Saudi Arabia in their quest to find the ideal school for their children.
- Presently, while parents are pleased with the overall quality of private schools in the country, they feel there is room for improvement. The survey identified Saudi nationals as well as those following the Saudi National Curriculum to be the least satisfied with the current education scenario, while Asian expatriates and those following the American curriculum appeared to be most pleased.
- This research has studied the different factors that are crucial for parents in their decision making as well as suggestive measures to improve the current quality available in primary education in the Kingdom.
In summary, the findings are all you wanted to know about the Saudi Parent.
