considering thousands of children have been murdered its no suprise illiteracy is high. Many who survived birth 2 years prior and since the war are not exactly going to be the best educated are they in an invasion where their very parents have been killed or are evading death.

Proximo you seemed to be obsessed with Iraq, instead of trying to entice arguements here, why dont you put your money where your mouth is, and do something constructive, ie go and fight for what you keep saying you believe in, instead of hiding behind a pc

Do you agree that people caught in fires deserve to die? No then go become a fireman instead of hiding behind a PC.

The fact that a lot of people in the UK are very poorly educated, there is a huge drive by the Government to re-educate a lot of the adults in the UK, some of whom cannot read or write or do simple maths

I agree

but..

lol these are not the kind of books you find at universities, most people who go to university are presumed to know how to write or do simple maths

MIght have something to do with the fact that Iraq is war torn, and so do not have these books anymore, or the finances to purchase, not the fault of the people!!!

As per usual its the innocent that suffer in these wars, im sure their education is the least of their worries at the moment.

Clearly not

the McKinsey consulting group was hired by my friend Barham Salih, the deputy prime minister of Iraq, to produce a business plan for a university along the lines of the existing success stories of the American Universities in Cairo and Beirut.


So many dumb people on this site.... It is people like you who should learn to read a book, something people in Iraq are already doing (which makes them better off than you with regards to literacy).

Sorry bro I'm trying to help you out there, you were wrong , you are the ignorant one, coming out with things like "im sure their education is the least of their worries at the moment." They seem to be doing a better job of being educated than yourself evidently.

If that is so how comes my son finished university last year with a £16,000 loan hanging over him. I am all for education for those that want it and will look out some books for this scheme but please do not compare it to the English University (rip off) system we have here.
