Iran Bans People With Some Types Of Health Issues, And Appearance, From Becoming Teachers

Published on 25 August, 2017 at 4:00 pm By

Iran’s Ministry of Education has sparked a new controversy by imposing new terms and conditions on the people who want to enter the field of teaching and education. According to media reports, the Ministry has announced these terms and conditions to attract new teachers particularly from Farhangian University and Shahid Rajaee University.

The shocking part of the announcement by the administration of Iran is that it prohibits people with certain types of ailments and appearances from becoming teachers in the country.

According to these conditions, people with ailments such as certain kinds of visual defects, deep and extensive fungal infections and some other skin diseases, leprosy, speech impairment, certain types of hearing disabilities, cancers, tumors, cardiac issues, chronic bronchitis, moderate or severe asthma, renal medical diseases and many other health issues cannot work as teachers in Iran.

There are some conditions pertaining to the appearances as well that prohibit persons with cross-eyes, less than 20 teeth, severe eczema, acne, unsightly facial moles or burn marks to work in the classrooms of the country. Also banned in the country now are women teachers who have facial hair, infertility, fatigue and some other health issues.

The entire manual of appearance and health specifications that bars people to work as teachers in Iran was published by the news agency Fars News. The list is divided into 18 sections which are further sub-divided into points.

It is understandable to restrict people with serious ailments or contagious diseases from teaching but putting a ban on people with certain types of appearance or health issues such as infertility or moles makes no sense.

The rules are largely being attacked on the social media and otherwise. It is really unfortunate to see a country judging its teachers based on health and appearance, which might actually not be an impediment in their teaching at all. It is even more appalling to see this happen in the 21st century when the entire world talks of modernization and broad-mindedness!
