Bahrain Education, General:
According to the Bahrain Ministry of Education:
The mission of the Bahrain Ministry of Education is "To pursue the development of a qualitative education system characterized by quality, to achieve excellence and perfection and creativity, to emerge from the constants and values of Islam and the interaction of human civilization and the Arab identity of the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Constitution, and to achieve the requirements of sustainable development consistent with international standards."
Higher Education in Bahrain:
As a result of the rapid development of international online education institutions in the United States, such as the University of Phoenix, students across the Middle East are accessing high-quality university-level education by way of distance learning programs and online classes. Students in Qatar are increasingly exploring such online education opportunities in hopes of developing tangible, globalized skills in business, technology, and health care.
As noted by the U.S. Department of State:
"Bahrain has invested its oil revenues in developing an advanced educational system. The first public schools for girls and boys were opened in the 1920s. The government continues to pay for all schooling costs. Although school attendance is not compulsory, primary and secondary attendance rates are high, and literacy rates are currently among the highest in the region.
Higher education is available for secondary school graduates at the Bahrain University, Arabian Gulf University and specialized institutes including the College of Health Sciences--operating under the direction of the Ministry of Health--which trains physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and paramedics. The government has identified providing educational services to the Gulf Cooperation Council as a potential economic growth area, and is actively working to establish Bahrain as a regional center for higher education.
