Education of Afghans in Iran is the highest education of refugees in the world
Director-General of the Foreign Nations and Immigrants Department of Tehran Governorate General, Issa Mousavinasab, said that the enrollment of Afghan nationals at the province’s schools was based on a tripartite agreement reached among the UNHCR, the Afghan government and Iran.
He further added that when Afghan refugees first sought refuge in Iran in 1981, the literacy rate among Afghan refugees was only 6%. This has now increased to 70% despite “the eight-year Iran-Iraq War” and the West sanctions on the country.
The figure marks unprecedented growth in terms of education of refugees in the world, adds the source.
