National Curriculum in Dubai Schools

So I just saw this link, on twitter of course, in Arabian Business' online magazine....

so apparently a survey was conducted that resulted in 60% saying they would like to see a national curriculum type arrangement in schools in the UAE.

My First thought is why isnt there one already?
My Second though is what would the curriculum be compared to?
My Third thought is, arn't schools here a year or so longer than the time you spend in school in the UK? does this mean they are behind? or do they do extra studies? and if so if you go back to the UK during the time your children are at school do they fall behind?

what do you all think about a curriculum? or do you choose you school based on the education level now? and does education and results here reflect the cost?
