The Ministry of Education has allocated $125 million for the construction of 182 schools in four Iraq provinces.
An Iraqi firm is constructing the schools to meet demand for the rising student population and ease congestion in current schools.
The state-run al-Simoud Steel Enterprise is building the schools. Al-Simoud is one of Iraq’s largest domestic pre-fab companies.
Under the contract, the firm is under obligation to have the schools ready by the end of the year.
The company will construct 98 schools in the Province of Salahuddeen.
The rest are to be built in the provinces of Nineveh, Kirkuk and Diyala.
