    The majority of schools in Baghdad and other provinces are currently facing a shortage of textbooks and writing materials. The large number of students in the country find themselves in classrooms that are overcrowded and insufficiently equipped to provide quality education.
    Many students have yet to receive their textbooks for this academic year. On Nov. 14, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] offered to print and distribute textbooks for the displaced in several southern Iraqi cities. Some Shiite religious authorities such as Ayatollah Muhammad al-Yaqoubi [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to raise money so that the textbooks could be printed.

On Nov. 4, the imam in the Kufa mosque demanded the impeachment of the education minister for not providing the necessary textbooks, which coincided with the calls of demonstrators in Dhi Qar province demanding Iqbal’s dismissal.

On Oct. 31, the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] said that the reason behind the shortage of school supplies was the government’s decision to reduce the budget allocated for printing the books, from 213 billion dinars to 75 billion ($18 million to $6 million). Hence, the ministry has been unable to pay off last year’s debts to the printing companies.
    These claims, however, are no justification for the corruption that has also caused a shortage in school materials. The [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] in Baghdad said Oct. 31 that it had confiscated 4,000 textbooks that stores run by the Education Ministry had distributed to the black market.
