Thesis After The Revolution The most notable things to consider after the revolution are:
De-secularization of schools (all were religious before)
Re-writing of curriculum to support the new style of government
Women held only about 10% of enrollment (versus the 40% immediately after the revolution)
Upper classes believe foreign education is superior to Iranian
Many Iranians study abroad
The majority of those don't return, creating a "brain drain" in Iran. Sources "Education System in Iran." Education System in Iran. N.p., n.d. Web. 02 Dec. 2012. <http://www.iran-embassy-oslo.no/embassy/educat.htm>.

PRINCIPLES BASED ON DECENCY AND PURITY Boys and Girls Separated Iran has elected governmental bodies at the national level. Although these bodies are subordinate to theocracy – which has veto power over who can run for parliament and whether its bills can become law – they have more power than equivalent organs in the Shah's government.
Iran's Sunni minority is at about about 8%. While Iran's small non-Muslim minorities do not have equal rights, five of the 290 parliamentary seats are allocated to their communities. More than 200 Bahá'ís have been executed or killed, and many more have been imprisoned, deprived of jobs, pensions, businesses, and educational opportunities. Bahá'í holy places have been confiscated, vandalized, or destroyed.More recently, Bahá'ís in Iran have been deprived of education and work. Several thousand young Bahá'ís between the ages of 17 and 24 have been expelled from universities for no particular reason. Whether the Islamic Republic has brought more or less severe political repression is disputed. Grumbling once done about the tyranny and corruption of the Shah and his court is now directed against "the Mullahs." Violations of human rights by the theocratic regime is said by some to be worse than during the monarchy, and in many cases highly restricted. All forms of popular music are banned. Men and women are not allowed to dance or swim with each other.
