Education commission is concerned about the growing trend of forging diplomas

Islamic Consultative Assembly News Agency – "Forging diplomas has irreparable damages on the scientific body of our country and continuing these illegal proceedings destroys motivations of activists acting in the fields of science and education", says Fatemeh Saeidi  Iranian educator and reformist politician who is currently a member of the Parliament of Iran (in the 10th period of ICA) representing Tehran, Rey, Shemiranat, Pardis and Eslamshahr electoral district.

"Arriving persons with fake university degrees at various jobs and managerial positions will face the country with numerous challenges due to lack of expertise and taking non technical decisions; these irresponsible people remove the country from the path of development and will create blind nodes or sightless knot", declared the 55 year old teacher and member of The Executives of Construction of Iran Party.

This season, Iran's parliament, the Majlis, is expected to take up work on a bill that would outlaw shady practices in scientific publishing. That's none too soon, says Javad Rahighi, director of the Iranian Light Source Facility (ILSF) here. "It’s very bad for Iran's science image," he says "This is one of the problems of an oil and gas country," adds Sorena Sattari, Iran's vice president for science and technology "We think we can buy everything."

"We should strictly behave with groups and bands of forgery of documents and diplomas; How to deal with these people and gangs will be determined in the next session of Education and Research commission with the presence of ministers of Education and Science and Research; this is very important to us because forge of any educational document in any educational grade will shake and make unstable the scientific foundations of the country", said Fatemeh who is also a member of Islamic Association of Educators while she holds a master's degree in educational management.

Although paper sellers brazenly ply their trade just outside the University of Tehran, scientists here think the problem is most acute at second-tier institutions. Universities with weaker standards should do a better job vetting theses, Examination systems should be set up in such a way to detect students who purchase their thesis.

Fatemeh Saeidi finished her statements and remarks so: Now degree orientation wrangles due to getting jobs and achieving many other social, vital and critical benefits depends on having the more and more higher university degrees and diplomas; we should revise on criteria of catching social benefits and note the meritocracy more than ever.

Iran has a large network of private, public, and state affiliated universities offering degrees in higher education. State-run universities of Iran are under the direct supervision of Iran's Ministry of Science, Research and Technology (for non-medical universities) and Ministry of Health and Medical Education (for medical schools).

According to article 3 of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Iran guarantees "free education and physical training for everyone at all levels, and the facilitation and expansion of higher education."

There are around five million university students educating in 2700 universities around Iran.
