Tehran, Iran, Sep. 19 – Iran’s Ministry of Education has issued a decree banning all male teachers from teaching in all-girls schools, a top ministry official announced earlier this week.

The new regulations will take effect from the beginning of the new academic year, Iran’s deputy Education Minister said.

The latest move is part of a wider plan to enforce gender segregation laws in public arenas.

Sex segregation was given a boost when hard-liner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad became President in 2005. Prior to his rise to the presidency, Ahmadinejad was the Mayor of Tehran. One of his first decisions in the city hall was to order gender segregation on elevators.

In April, officials reported that a new women-only bus service would be launched in Tehran; and in July, authorities in the holy city of Qom announced that they had put forward a plan to segregate the city’s parks.
