The Educational System of Iran. [Reprint.]
Institute of International Studies (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
The educational system of Iran is examined in this document. The basic structural pattern of Iranian education provides for six years of elementary and six years of secondary divided into two 3-year stages. Higher education, including teacher education, is offered at a variety of universities, colleges, and institutes. Vocational programs are available. Schools at all levels may be public, semipublic, or private. Iran's educational system is currently undergoing reform as part of the government plans for the country's modernization and development. Under these plans, the government is not only revising the school system's structure and curriculum, but is also striving to meet the mass educational needs and correct the educational deficiencies of both children and adults, particularly in rural areas where literacy training programs are emphasized. Of major note is the authorized revision of the elementary-secondary school system structure, which the government plans to introduce into the schools on a grade-by-grade schedule. A selected reading list concludes the document. (Author/JR)
