In the opening ceremony of this meeting, Mahdi Navid, secretary general of the Supreme Education Council stated that supporting the Islamic teachings and sciences schools and providing their qualitative and quantitative development is one of the policies of the education system, adding in the past 30 years, these schools have had many ups and downs and in the recent years, we have concluded that in order to systemize such support, we should establish a committee in the secretariat of the Supreme Education Council.

He went on to say: The strategy adopted by this committee is to move towards the development of these schools and regard Islamic teachings and sciences schools as a cultural base and in this regard, special attention is paid to the culturally vulnerable areas of the country.
The secretary general of the Supreme Education Council noted: Attracting the others’ cooperation and interaction for developing these schools is the other strategy of the Supreme Education Council and we can use the capacity of seminaries and benefactors for strengthening these schools.

He added: Promoting the quality of the applied programs is one of our priorities and in this regard, the textbooks have been reproduced and reviewed and in order to empower people, we have made efforts, but, unfortunately, we have not achieved much success in this regard.
Pointing out that the strategy of the Education Ministry is to support and develop Sadra Islamic teachings and sciences schools, Navid noted: We believe that these schools can be influential as a cultural base for disseminating the Islamic and revolutionary teachings and we make efforts to consider the shortcomings of the education system in accordance with current situation and precious works have been done for six years in order to design the roadmap.

He added: This roadmap has been designed as the fundamental transformation document and has been approved by the Supreme Education Council and the Supreme Cultural Revolution Council and this document should review and reproduce all elements of education and training and they should be implemented in all schools across the country.
The secretary general of the Supreme Education Council specified: In the fundamental transformation document, transformation means deep and root, comprehensive, systematic and future-based change according to the divine and Islamic teachings.
Proper investment has not been made in the education system and if education is regarded as the center of policy-making and if it is based on the divine and Islamic teachings, the existing shortcomings will be removed and we will have a country in dignity of the Revolution, he said.

Pointing out that the fundamental transformation is the dominant discourse of the education system, Navid announced: The principals of schools are the flag-bearers of transformation in the education system and it is needed for the principals of schools to adopt an educational curriculum and due to the existing potentials, the Islamic teachings and sciences schools can be the source and pilot of the fundamental transformation document and in order to fulfill this goal, they should become familiar with the 1404 outlook plan.

The secretary general of the Supreme Education Council reminded: If the fundamental transformation document is implemented, some changes will be created in the system and changing the educational system into a cultural institution will be the most important change at the macro level and if this change is created, schools will be changed from a mere educational place into a center for gaining the life experiences.

Noting that it is essential to adopt the cultural-educational approach at schools, he added: The ground for training students in accordance with the Islamic-Iranian culture and the current conditions should be prepared.
Stressing that identity is the essential need of our society, Navid noted: In the education system, a balance should be created among ethnic, Iranian, Islamic and international identity.

Then, in this ceremony, the member of the IDO board of trustees pointed out that we have two theoretical and practical reason in sciences, adding the theoretical reason considers generalities and computation and our country has problem in the computation management.
Seyyed Mahdi Khamoushi noted: In our country, the social engineering has been ignored and special attention should be paid in this regard and the supreme leader of the Islamic Revolution is concerned about the social harms because of the existing shortcomings in this part.
Pointing out that thought in our society should be considered from different aspects, he noted: The amount of onslaughts against Iran is much more than our products against this orientation and the huge amount of attacks against our country doesn’t leave any place for the correct thought and students are exposed to these onslaught.

Hojatoleslam Khamoushi reminded: Sadra and Shahid Motahari schools have moved on a path that is the pattern of training and the Islamic teachings and sciences schools should be a model to the others and we believe that these schools should be developed.
Seyyed Mahdi Khamoushi asserted: What has aimed at the correct thinking is the huge onslaughts of the opponent front and our children and students are exposed to this issue too.
He added: We should move towards the relative advantage and make our children pious, since, piety is the ultimate religious goal and the pious man is patient and Satan cannot influence him.

In the second day of this meeting, the head of the Organization of Islamic Teachings and Sciences schools and some principals of Sadra schools welcomed the participants and clarified the goals and priorities of Sadra schools and their strengths and weaknesses.
Touching on the influence of the activities of Sadra schools on the society, Hojatoleslam Mohammad Qomi, the head of Islamic Development Organization noted: A crucial period of time is ahead of our society and people are involved in different problems and of course, most of these problems are economic ones.

Pointing to the supreme leader’s emphasis on overcoming these problems, Hojatoleslam Qomi stressed: All of these pressures are imposed in order to make people give up and it is not possible to go through this situation unless people resist and if they resist, we will have a bright and great future.
The member of the Supreme Cultural Revolution Council specified: People won’t resist unless the revolutionary and pure Islam is in danger and if they are exposed to the Alavi, Fatemi and Ashura-based Islam, they will resist.
