Decline in Illiteracy

Decline in Illiteracy

The rate of illiteracy in the 10-49 age group has seen a 2.3% decline over the past four years, with over 1.1 million people educated by the Literacy Movement Organization. Foreign nationals constitute a large number of illiterate people in Iran, increasing the country’s illiteracy rate. According to Ali Baqerzadeh, head of the LMO, 60% of immigrants in Iran (mostly Afghans) are unable to read and write, Borna News Agency reported. “Providing education for all individuals is a top priority of the government,” said the official, adding that several incentives have been envisioned in recent years to encourage education, including 1.4 million-rial ($37) awards for those who pass final exams.
