“Reform Document”

Mohyeddin Bahram Mohammadian said in his interview with IRNA: Execution of “Reform Document”, in the field of educational plan and textbooks has begun five years ago, but there has not been an even progress  in all sections.

We have already produced new contents and textbooks in accordance with the “Reform Document”, up to 10th grade and there will be new books for 11th grade during 1396-97 educational year, added he.

Head of OERP said: There are new books like “Thinking and Research” and “Work and Technology” for elementary school and “Thinking and Lifestyle” for junior high, “Technology Workshop”and “Production and Resistance Economy” published.

There are complaints about process of execution of this document, for example Farhangian University is established based on implications of this document but it has not reached expected standards, for there are still teachers coming in from other academic centers. Sometimes there are sanctions forced upon educational system from parliament or other sections and this happens where “Teacher’s Training” is pictured as a system which covers recruitment, training and keeping teachers, continued Research Deputy of the minister.

He also said: For building and renovation of schools, there is no document defining characteristics of schools’ building.
