Kurdistan Suspends Foreign Investment in Education

The government of Iraq's northern Kurdistan region has decided to suspend foreign investment in the education sector, in an effort to tackle low standards of teaching in the semi-autonomous province, Meed has reported.

"We need to sort ourselves out and put our house in order first," Dlawer Ala'Aldeen, the minister for higher education said.

The ministry had turned away institutions from the US and Europe, including the US' Harvard University and a consortium of French universities interested in opening a law school in Kurdistan.
