Students to learn citizenship rights

Tehran, July 24, IRNA - Iran’s Citizenship Rights Charter proposed by President Hassan Rouhani will be taught to school students, said the deputy education minister.

Hamid Reza Kafash said the draft of student right charter is also expected to be approved by High Council of Education Ministry in the near future.

According to Iran Daily published on Wednesday, the official said that based on the agreement signed between education minister and vice president for legal affairs, basic legal concepts and principle will be incorporated in school books, publications, brochures and extracurricular programs.

He hoped the plan will be launched in the next academic year (to start September 23), adding that citizenship rights, derived from religious laws and regulations, are to some extent different from those in Western countries.

The first draft of the citizenship charter was released in October 2013. The draft, prepared in cooperation with university professors, elites, and seminary schools, was released on the president’s website along with the government’s report to mark the 100th day of Rouhani’s presidency.
