Moral education was announced in 2016 by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.
Moral Education is based on Charity and Morality; The individual and the Community’ Civic Studies; and Cultural Studies. Schools must allocate 60 minutes a week for the subject.
