Compulsory Arabic language for Grades 11-12 at Abu Dhabi Indian schools (10-25 November 2013)
  • The Gulf News had a series of confusing reports about whether or not Indian schools in Abu Dhabi must have compulsory Arabic classes for Grade 11-12 students, mentioning St Joseph's School as one of the schools requiring students to study Arabic, and charging extra fees for the additional classes. Apparently schools say ADEC told them classes were required, but the Gulf News said ADEC said they were optional.
