Provincial Educational Division

A draft to be written for Mazandaran Educational [Department] that they are the intermediary for communication between the ministry and other government divisions. The Ministry of Education can directly communicate if necessary, but the purpose of sending him is to look into the educational affairs as this was an order from the Centre. Should the offices fail to fulfil their duties, perhaps other solutions will be offered. Regarding the school of Kafshgar Kola in Aliabad, which after a long period of negligence wrote an unclear reply, sufficient investigation needs to be carried out in absolute impartiality to see if the school needs to get a permit for establishment. Two weeks of investigation regarding [illegible] of it, if it is an old-style school then it is exempt from this law. In any case, students and educators should not act against the laws and regulations of Islamic education.
