A student group will screen “Education Under Fire,” a 30-minute documentary on Monday, March 25 at 7:00 pm in the Don and Marion McDougall Hall, Room 242.
Today, thousands in Iran are denied formal university education due to their religious or ideological beliefs. This documentary is a response to that and tells the poignant and compelling story of the Bahá’í Institute for Higher Education (BIHE)—the only chance for an entire minority community in Iran to receive an education. In May 2011, the BIHE was attacked and another door to a basic human right was closed.
UPEI’s Faculty of Education has sponsored this event and the students hope the documentary will continue to raise awareness of the unacceptable violations of human rights in Iran.
This event is free and all are welcome to attend!
