Education in Iran Brandon and Alli

  1. 1. Education in Iran<br />By: Allison Inman<br />
  2. 2. Motivation for Learning<br />Education in Iran is very lecture-based, test driven, and quite opposite from STEM education. Memorization of facts is a large part of studying and the students are required to acquire a very large amount of information in order to pass the end-of-year exam. <br />
  3. 3. End-of-Year Exam<br />The end-of-year exam determines your passing to the next grade level. Without a passing score, students must repeat the entire year of schooling.<br />
  4. 4. Literacy<br />As of 2002, 77% of the population is literate.<br />83.5% of men are literate.<br />70.4% of women are literate.<br />
  5. 5. Textbooks<br />Textbooks in Iran are vastly different from those in the U.S. A typical textbook in Iran is paperbound, filled with complex language, and filled with little to no pictures/drawings. <br />The Ministry of Education in Iran publishes the textbooks. <br />
  6. 6. Attendance<br />Schools are attended Saturday-Thurday. All schools are closed on Fridays and national/religious holidays.<br />School is in session for 200 days a year.<br />Students are projected to attend school for about 13 year. (both male and female)<br />
  7. 7. Uniforms<br />Students in Iran wear school uniforms or have a very strict dress code. It depends on the school.<br />
  8. 8. Language/Foreign Language<br />School is taught in Farsi.<br />Foreign languages-<br />English (most common)<br />Arabic (most common)<br />German (International schools only)<br />French (International schools only)<br />
  9. 9. Grading System<br />The grading system is usually based on a scale which ranges from 0-20 <br />A= 17-20<br />B=14-16.9<br />C=12-13.9<br />D=10-11.9<br />
  10. 10. “Brain-Drain”<br />Iran suffers from many of its educated citizens leaving the country. Every year, approximately 150,000 educated citizens leave. This is often called brain drain.<br />Some causes for this include<br />An unemployment rate of 11%<br />Higher education in other countries<br />Lack of educational resources<br />
  11. 11. Graduation<br />The high school diploma is awarded at the end of twelfth grade as of 1990.<br />Before 1990 it was awarded at the end of 11th grade.<br />
