This is the future

I know the guy who is responsible for this project in person, it doesnt seem that it got that attention in the media

He told me that this method has been applied to a german student, he is aged 16 now and proved the falseness of two theories. He said that the student will have the knowledge of a PhD students.

He is really excited about the project. He told me also that they want to make new curriculum for all the subjects from grades 1 to 12 and that they wanted to distance themselves from the ministry of education

The talents will be on 7 subjects. I remember 5 of them only which are Math, Engineer, Science, Islamic studies and Leadership

The programme - a unique initiative of the Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award for Distinguished Academic Performance - aims to discover talented pupils and train them to become future leaders of the country, said Dr Hanif Hassan.

I'm intrigued to know what this means and how the project is going to work.

As I understand it, leaders of the country have to be at least Emirati.

Does this mean:

a) They're going to admit only talented Emiratis onto the scheme to develop them as future leaders, and therefore stream them away from the education mainstream?


b) They're throwing open the leadership of the country to expatriates too?
