TEHRAN- Yousef Noori, the Iranian Minister of Education, resigned on Monday in the wake of public dissatisfaction over the failure to pay the wage of contractual teachers on time at the end of the previous Persian year in March.

On Monday, Noori’s resignation was accepted by President Ebrahim Raisi.

Reza Morad Sahraee, the current chancellor of Farhangian University, has been chosen by the president to serve as the interim education minister.

Contractual teachers are incensed at the Education Ministry’s subpar performance after it failed to pay the wages at the conclusion of the Persian calendar year.
