Over 70,000 students deprived of education have returned to schools since the beginning of the government’s tenure in August 2013, said Deputy Education Minister Mohammad Deymevar. “A total of 76,449 students in various grades have restarted their education, among whom nearly 34,000 are girls,” he said, Borna News Agency reported. Extending the national education network through enhancing both quality and quantity of educational facilities was the key measure in bringing the students back to school. Educating parents of primary school children in rural areas, and preparing a database of the core reasons for students dropping out of school followed by remedial action, were among the other steps taken.
