Last week, MP Ali Mattar of the Services Committee proposed the idea of segregating the University of Bahrain. Well, guess what (from the GDN)?
Bahrain will open its first all-female university in September next year, it was revealed yesterday.Hooray! This is all the more reason for MP Mattar to not waste the Parliament's time with his UoB segregation proposal. It looks like the Royal University for Women will be an excellent institution for women who are not comfortable with a co-ed educational environment. Of course, it might not be possible for everyone to afford it since it will be private. But when the public budget is so tight as it is, it would be irresponsible of the government to commit precious resources towards the segregation of Bahrain University.
The Royal University for Women, which is also the first of its kind in the Middle East, will offer degrees education, design and computer sciences and management.
The Faculties of Education and Management are affiliated with McGill University, Canada, while the Faculty of Design and Computer Sciences is affiliated with Middlesex University, UK. (Continued)
If you'd like to tell MP Mattar what you think about his segregation proposal (in very polite words, of course), then please contact him:
