Shortage of resources leads to Iran’s nomad students dropping out of school.
Mohammad Reza Seifi, director of the Office of Nomads’ Education, said the above and added that between 46 to 50 per cent of nomad students drop out of school after finishing their elementary education.
He further said, “Factors such as living in distant places, severe cold, and lack of transportation to school, make education conditions extremely difficult for nomad girls especially in Sistan-o Baluchistan Province (southeastern Iran) and in some instances lead to the students dropping out of school.
