Majlis Speaker Vows To Help Solve Financial Problems Of Education Ministry

TEHRAN (IRNA) -- Majlis Speaker Gholamali Haddad-Adel said on Sunday that the parliament would contribute to removing the financial problems of the Education Ministry.

In a meeting with the heads of the Education Departments from the provinces, Haddad-Adel said that payment in the Education Ministry should not remain below that of other institutions; otherwise, efficient workforce would refrain from working for the Education Ministry which is detrimental to the level of education.

"When we expect talented students in the universities, we should know that such students should come from classrooms of the Education Ministry," the Majlis speaker said.

He said that the 20-Year Strategy for economic, social and cultural prospects of Iran focuses on providing the highest possible human resources and capability in the field of science and technology by the year 2025.

"So we need well-qualified teachers and high standard educational system to reach the target of having top human resources by the next 20 years," Haddad-Adel declared.

He criticized the fact that sometimes in the past the budget for teacher training was being spent elsewhere.

Haddad-Adel said that 83 members of parliament have formed a group to help resolve the problems of the Education Ministry.

He said that the government and parliament should work together to improve the payment system of the teachers.
