The new proposed Minister of Education was born in 1961. He holds a PhD in Management from Tehran-based Allameh Tabatabei University. 

Nouri has had a strong executive background. He has held the following posts in his resumé: director general of Planning and Budget Department and head of the IT and Communications Headquarters of the Education Ministry; member of the Teachers Fund’s Board of Trustees; and teaching at the Teacher’s Training College of Ilam and Iranian schools in Qatar and Bahrain.
