UNESCO and the Education Minister of Iraq yesterday launched the Iraqi Educational TV Channel, IRAQI EDU. The channel is a response to the difficult security conditions in the country that keep many children away from school, and will provide support to students through distance learning.
A $ 6.5 million project, financed by the European Union as part of their overall support for the  Sector in Iraq, is being implemented by UNESCO in cooperation with the Iraqi Ministry of Education. The channel will broadcast 24 hours a day educational episodes based on the Iraqi school curricula. The project is designed particularly for primary and secondary school students both within and outside of Iraq.The new television channel allows teachers and pupils to follow the school curriculum through distance learning tools.
It is mainly a response to security risks that result in a high rate of absenteeism and the closing of schools.
