Teaching Arabic in Al-Ahwaz is BANNED!

#Al_Ahwaz/#Iran
Al-Ahwaz also known as Arabistan is as Arabian Country, a home to some 8-10 million Arabs. It was a pure #Arab territory and an independent country until 1925 when it was occupied by Iran.

Did you know that teaching Arabic in Al-Ahwaz is BANNED, the study of Farsi(Persian) is compulsory in every school, which is a part of a broader assimilation (Irannization) policy. This process is causing an approximate 30% drop-out rate from primary schools, 50% out of secondary schools, and 70% out of high schools.
