Under Imam Khomeini leadership, Iran enjoyed high literacy rate in region

Due to Imam Khomeini’s special attention to education sector and wise educational policies, literacy rate was dramatically improved and special opportunities were initiated at primary and higher educational levels.

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic recommended to launch a widespread campaign of awareness in order to spread education at all levels for all strata of people following the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. 

The great spiritual and political leader issued special guidelines in order to improve the country’s literacy rate and promoted a wide-scale education campaign for masses and elites. 

Imam advised the relevant authorities to consider education as important as basic healthcare and social welfare. 

Imam Khomeini was inspired by the holy teachings of the holy prophet and his infallible successors who encouraged the education and gave great importance to knowledge. The holy Quran and our religious traditions put great emphasizes on gaining knowledge and wisdom. 

Imam himself was a poet, jurist, mystic and philosopher and a great scholar. His services in spreading knowledge will be remembered for generations to come and several Islamic and other nations can adopt it as role model in order to effectively eradicate illiteracy, poverty and inequality for the societies. 

Iran accomplished great scientific and academic achievements under the wise leadership of Imam Khomeini and became the most literate country in the Middle-East and became a role model for the entire Muslim world.  

The great Imam’s motto of education for all was seriously adopted and free education with great quality was provided in all well-developed or less developed parts of the country. 

The results for this campaign were soon tangible and the Iranian universities were expanded and their ranking was upgraded in the international system. 

In recent years, Iran has bee ranked high in fields of humanities, social sciences, research, scientific education and medical education and the achievements were enormous.
