President Hassan Rouhani lauded efforts by teachers and educators at the closing ceremony of the 32nd conference of the Ministry of Education on Tuesday.

“Our jurists and diplomats are successful alumni of this sacred and vital institution,” he said at the meeting, attended by directors of the ministry, IRNA reports.

Noting that philosophers like Al-Farabi, Avicenna, Al-Biruni, Nizam al-Mulk, and Nasir al-Din al-Tusi were born in Iran, Rouhani said education received great impetus after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

He appreciated the work of the ministry in cultivating “the necessary traits in children and adolescents in academics through suitable education modules to become better individuals in society.”

The president also stressed that modernizing education goes beyond digitizing the system and calls for appropriate use of technologies in accordance with national cultural and religious values given that “modernity could be dangerous if we lose sight of our purpose.”

“We need to think globally, but act locally and expand intellectual environment for the youth.”

Education Minister Ali Asghar Fani told the conference that the government plans to address problems in the education system through academic reforms.
