TEHRAN - Estimates show that around 350 to 500 thousand Iranians are studying outside of the country, the minister of education said on Saturday.
Ali Asghar Faani, who was briefing a gathering of teachers set to be dispatched to Iran’s official schools abroad, said that his organization is planning to restructure the system governing its foreign missions and “make them more compatible with the cultural changes.”
The Ministry of Education runs a number of schools outside Iran, mainly in the Persian Gulf countries as well as some European countries.
Faani emphasized the need to promote the Persian language in overseas branches and described it as one of his main priorities to protect the cultural identity of the Iranian students studying abroad.
