Private schools have played an important role in creating employment. An estimated  262,000 people work in these schools across the country, said Hassan Masoudi, director of private schools at the Education Ministry.

“At present, only 11% of our schools are private and 200,000 well-trained teachers are working in the schools,” reported.

According to Masoudi, 75% of the founders of private schools have over 25 years of relevant experience.

“About 68,000 people working in private schools are experienced retirees,” he said, adding that 70% of them hold post-graduate or PhD degrees.

Private schools have helped reduce student population in the crowded schools. “On average 28 students study in one classroom in a public school. The number would climb to 45 students per classroom if private classrooms did not exist,” he said.
