Plans are underway to connect all Iranian rural and urban schools to the National Information Network free of charge to curb educational disparity.
Information and Communication Technologies Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi said on Twitter on Wednesday, “With the collaboration of the Education Ministry, all the schools are now connected to high-speed internet, giving the school students of all grades access to online education,” Peivast reported.
The National Information Network is a local network described by Islamic Republic authorities as an alternative, independent network with content compatible with Islamic values to facilitate Iranian users’ access to indigenous content.
