English forbidden in primary schools!


[Iran bans teaching the English language in primary schools.]

–Holding classes for the English language during official hours – as a part of the official curriculum – is against the law in both governmental and non-governmental schools. This has happened in some extra-curriculum programs in some schools, and officials in related units are investigating to stop this from happening in those schools. That is because the supposition in primary school is to reinforce the foundation of Iranian culture and Persian culture –Persian language and literature – in children.
