This episode continues our interview with eminent Baha’i historian, Dr. Moojan Momen, on the transformation of education in Iran facilitated by the Persian Baha’i community’s network of over 60 schools spread throughout the nation. At a time when Iran was almost entirely illiterate, the literacy rate in the Baha’i community was near universal. It’s a remarkable story. In this episode we explore the impact this network of schools had in Iran – and the circumstances that led to their closure by imperial decree in 1934.
