Currently, 400,000 students are studying in boarding schools in deprived areas of the country, and among them 7,000 students are from 135 schools in Kurdistan Province, said Ali Asghar Fani, education minister on Saturday, on the sidelines of a launching ceremony to provide gas connections to 48 villages in the province. He said the establishment of boarding schools in cities close to the deprived areas and sparsely populated villages “is the most effective measure taken for improving equal access to education,” IRNA reported. NGOs’ involvement in development of boarding schools is necessary, he added.
