A study carried out by the UN and issued on Friday revealed that 84% of the higher education establishment in Iraq were "destroyed, damaged and robbed " since the beginning of the American invasion in 2003.

It said that some 50 university teachers were assassinated and "the threats are directed to others working in this sector."

The study said that the current re-building operation of Iraq "includes only 40% of the higher education establishments and called on the international community to give support for rehabilitation of this vital sector."

It's important to note that even though this source is Arabic in nature, the story pertains to an actual UN study that was recently completed. Also of equal importance, the downfall of the educational system in Iraq seems to solely be in the hands of the insurgent uprising.

I wouldn't be surprised if this lead to the privatization of the educational system in Iraq letting corporations exert their own agenda onto the youth while in turn, earning massive profit from the educational system.
