All illiterates to become literate in Iran

"Currently we don’t have any problem in the provision of literacy services sector, and the Literacy Movement Organization is ready to educate all the illiterates of the country, and the government supports the movement as well," the deputy head of the Literacy Movement Organization said.

Isfahan (IMNA) – Saying that 370,000 have enrolled in GED training courses, Mohammad Mahdizade said, "The applicants of this course can enroll till 5 January." Pointing out that the main problem in the literacy field of the country is the lack of illiterate's interest, he said, "Attracting people with less attitude is very difficult, and their persistence is more difficult due to the reasons like husband's dissatisfaction, distance, and etc."

Referring to this fact that currently poverty is the main reason for illiteracy of many Iranian people, he noted, "Some people haven’t had any opportunity to continue their education due to their jobs."It is expected that literate people could help us in this regard, and encourage the illiterates to attend the literacy classes."

"According to the 2016 census, the most literate provinces of the country are Tehran, Isfahan, Semnan, Yazd, Mazandaran; the literacy average of these provinces is higher than the country's average, and Sistan and Baluchestan, West Azarbaijan, and Kordestan are the least literate provinces," he also said.
