The media official of the Yemeni Teachers Syndicate, Yahya Al-Yinaei, revealed that there are Iranians in Sanaa who are supervising the amendment of the curriculum and the transmission of Iran's experiences in educational policy and scientific content.

Al-Yinaei confirmed the presence of the Iranians as advisors to Yahya Badr al-Din al-Houthi, the brother of the militia leader, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, who runs the Ministry of Education in the Houthi government in Sana'a.

The union official also accused the Houthi militia of renting education to Iran, which it is struggling to penetrate in order to reproduce the geography of sectarian countries in the region.

He said that Al-Houthi allowed Iran to interfere with education and change the contents of the Yemeni cultural identity and knowledge structure, stressing that this is a dangerous form of occupation, because it involves the destruction of the Yemeni identity, history and full awareness of the Yemeni people.

Al-Yinaei pointed out that Iran's strategy is to use educational and cultural institutions, which aim to penetrate the sectarian ideology of the Iranian regime in the region, and to provide civilian cover for its military arms that are working to ignite civil wars and carry out subversive activities at the expense of Yemeni and regional stability.

The Houthi militia imposed new restrictions on private schools in Sana'a and its areas of control, with the start of the 2020-2021 school year, as part of the completion of the bulldozing of the educational process and harnessing it to serve its Iranian-backed sectarian project.

Since the Houthi militia seized control of the capital, Sana'a, in September 2014, the basic education curriculum included substantial amendments that match its ideological, religious and sectarian orientation.
