Education in Iraq
Iraq Fact of the Day

Renewing Iraq's educational system is vital because Iraqi youth will determine their country's future. All universities are open, 5.1 million Iraqi primary school students are back in the classroom, and more than 51 million new textbooks - without propaganda - are being distributed. Plus, Iraqi teachers now earn up to 25 times their salaries before liberation.
