IRAN: Nearly 100,000 school students deprived of education in impoverished provincePublished by International Liberty Association on May 24, 2016
The head of the Iranian regime’s Department of Education in Iran’s impoverished Sistan and Baluchistan Province has admitted that 96,000 school students in the province are deprived of education.
In a May 19 interview with the state-run daily Shahrvand, Zahra Borhan-Zehi said: “About 13 thousands of these people – children and teenagers – do not have an identity card and they are just immigrants. Among those who do not have identity cards, there are an increasing number of Iranian children whose fathers are foreigners.”
She added: “The state of education in this province is significantly different from the national average. There is no difference between the Sistani students and the children of immigrants.”
