Zohreh Hosseini has written in the Editorial of this issue as follows: “Nobody questions the importance of training and education in the country based on the culture dominating its society. We are well-aware that the educational system of each society is one of the most fundamental factors whose good or bad effects are revealed during the next years or centuries. I intended to write something about the significance of this issue; however, the more I tried, the more I understood that whatever I write will not be as illuminating as the words of our dear Supreme Leader on the Teachers’ Day. Therefore, I decided to quote some of his precious statements in his meeting with teachers on 19.04.2015. In a part of his speech, Ayatullah Khamenei maintained:

A good teacher can create great men and women and distinguished figures even in a defective educational system. Therefore, the key feature in this system is the teacher. But, what is the responsibility of a teacher? Clearly, it is the training of a generation which is wise, faithful, self-confident, hopeful, happy, mentally and physically healthy, intellectual, strong-willed, economical, and productive. A teacher should train such a generation, which is a daunting task … “Teaching is the job of prophets” …. “Teaching is a prophetic job.”
