According to Mr. Najeeb Al-Saadi, human rights activist and Head of the Wathaq Foundation for Rights “The Houthis (funded & trained by Islamic State of Iran) are trying to control the education process by appointing general managers and principals who are allied to them, despite having no link with education. The Houthis insist on using schools for promoting their (radical) ideologies among students to encourage them to fight.”
Yahya Al-HouthiHouthis named Yahya Al-Houthi, a terrorist that was involved in firing anti-armored rocket to US Embassy building in Sana’a in May 3rd in 2005, is now named Minister of Education in Houthi government. He is on Interpol Red list.
This documentary video posted by Yemen Media Observatory, an NGO that tracks and document violations and crimes against human rights in Yemen, shows how It is a top priority for the Houthis to replace principals and teachers with those affiliated with their radical ideologies views.
The Houthis are trying to control the education process by appointing general managers and principals who are allied to them, despite having no link with education.
They have modified curriculums studies based on the founder of the Houthi radical movement, Hussein Baderaddin Al-Houthi.
They forced students to chant Death to America, Death to Israel in Kindergarten similar to teaching in Islamic State of Iran.
They are misleading students at young age by filling their minds with sectarian and radical ideologies to expand hate rate and sectarian conflicts. They are working to create a generation loyal to them, but fortunately, many students and parents are rejecting these radical practices.
