The purpose of this study is to analyze the degree of globalization of important indicators of education system in Iran including teaching approaches, educational tools and facilities, curriculums and contents, and education management. Findings suggest that the situation of Iranian education system has some distance with the globalized level and post modernism and is more aligned with traditional indicators and is stagnant and somehow modernity. Among these indicators, teaching approaches are closer to the globalized level and educational tools and facilities are further than others relative to the globalized standards. Holding in-service training courses for teachers and encouraging them to obtain higher scientific degrees as well as equipping schools with educational technologies by the help of designating more budget, motivating non-centralized programs, employing graduates of education management fields in order to take charge of management in education system can lead to a reduction in the gap between education system of Iran and the globalized one.
