Progress Achieved towards
Illiteracy Eradication (1997-2007)
(5/1/4) Implementation Stage:
The first stage was implemented at the MOE in the year 2001. Then, after a proper follow-up and evaluation of that experiment, the entire directorates of education all over the country in turn had started applying it for almost three years period.

As for the female illiterates, the experiment began in 2004 and ended in 2006. Over 4540 female subjects in the central girls’ education sector, as well as at schools, had become extraordinarily literate.
(5/2) IFP for Public Security:
The MOE, in coordination with the Public Security, has created out an IFP program, especially designed for the Public Security sector environment. This program involved within all the above- mentioned stages, in the form of the following procedures:
(5/2/1) Experiment Stage:
Experimentally, the project was applied at the Public Security Training Center in five areas, during the academic year 2000/2001, which lasted for one full academic year. Moreover, 12 classrooms were opened to serve over 177 illiterate adult students.
(5/2/2) Expansion Stage:
The directorate general of IFP programs, in this stage, has made up an evaluation study of the experiment. Right after avoiding all negative points found in the above-mentioned one-year experiment, this stage was put to action in the second semester of the academic year 2000/2001.
