6 million illiterate in Iraq, report

A report prepared by two NGO organizations revealed that Iraq has 6 million illiterates, with no solutions to solve the problem. 

In a copy received by Aswat al-Iraq, the report was issued on the International day on Illiteracy Eradication, today. 

It pointed out that the last census made was in 1997, but no exact statistics were published on illiteracy in Iraq. 

Iraqi Parliament endorsed, in September 2010, the Illiteracy Eradication Law. 

On the other hand, Iraqi Education Ministry inaugurated 5000 centers for illiteracy eradication all over Iraq. 

In 1991, Iraq announced that "there is no illiterate Iraqi in the country", but due to the circumstance passed through the country, the illiteracy regained power in the Iraqi society due to security, political and economic instability. 

The report pointed out that illiteracy among females is lesser than those with males.
