There are more than 400,000 students who are studying in Iranian boarding schools.
Educational justice was the most significant goal in order to the establishment of these schools in the country.
Although, despite the actions taken, these educational centers still face issues such as equipment insufficiency and shortage in possibilities and financial credit.
One of the most crucial shortcomings is the space and sports facilities. The lack of physical education teachers, proper and standard sports facilities, and the lack of a long-term and comprehensive program for sports in these schools, has provoked the homesickness and loneliness of these students who live away from their families in these centers during the week. Imam Ali boarding school in Farim rural district of Sari county has been closed since March 2020 due to the outbreak of the Corona-Virus in the country.
