Education authorities in Iran have made a bizarre policy which is causing commotion among stakeholders of the sector in that country.
Dailymail reports that Iran’s education department has banned ugly teachers from the classroom, including women with facial hair or those suffering from acne.
Twitter users criticised the rules as they went viral online.
A list of proscribed ailments, including having a scar or a fungal infection was released by the FARS news agency. Also, anyone who is cross-eyed, has ugly facial moles or skin conditions such as acne or eczema faces redundancy.
It was learnt that women who have facial hair will also be sacked, along with teachers with fewer than 20 teeth or those suffering a fungal infection. Women are allowed to teach in Iran although they must wear a scarf covering their hair.
Art teachers will be sacked if they report they are colourblind and infertile female teachers will also be banned from the classroom.
