Iranian Schools Enroll Afghan Students Free of Charge
A new decree issued by Iran’s Interior Ministry will enable Afghan expatriates in the country to get schooling for their children free of charge.
Afghan families residing in Iran will no more have to pay any fee to sign up their children in Iranian schools, the Interior Ministry officials announced.
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei issued an order last year stressing that all Afghan children, even children of the undocumented migrants living in the country illegally, have the right to register and study in Iran's schools.
Back in May 2015, Afghan Minister of Refugees and Repatriation Seyed Hussain Alemi Balkhi lauded Iran for providing Afghan children with the opportunity to receive education on Imam Khamenei's orders, Tasnim reports.
