IRAQ; demolishing schools by Dept of Education, not building any new ones. Students shall travel to other schools away from homes and some schools are hosting three schools at the same time. For solution, the study hours is condensed to 2 hours while the Dept. does not certify less than 7 hours minimum, recess, PE, Art cancelled. 

School administration and teachers torture, beat, cut and shave hair and drag female students for not wearing HIJAB ( head scarf). Discrimination against non veiled female students reached high levels. Teachers give more grades to female students the more they cover their bodies. 

Mum said: " why you want to leave Iraq?" I say, " yeah, like I want my daughter to live like I do!"
