We wish to enjoy the identical educational conditions for all the children of this land and this is their right. Our desire is that no child be left out of education in our vast land of Iran.
The average per capita educational infrastructure per student is 4.95 square meters. The global standard is 5.12, and 14 of our provinces are below the standard.
Our objective is that no child is left out of education in our country due to the lack of access to educational spaces.
Based on the 2015-2016 statistics, Iran’s education rank is 74 among 140 countries.
Our wish is that one day the education system of our country will reach a high rank in the world.
Sixty seven percent of the educational spaces in the country are safe and 33% of our educational spaces are not standard yet.
Our desire is to ensure the safety and health of all Iranian students through construction of standard and safe schools.
Sixty percent of schools in our country do not have a library at all.
We desire that one day all children of Iran will have easy access to good books in all parts of our country.
