Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's pick for education minister has presented her program to lawmakers - the first time a woman nominee for a ministerial post addressed parliament since the 1970s. Deputy education minister Susan Keshavarz said on Monday she planned to privatize public schools and increase teachers' salaries, but critics argued she is "amateur and unprofessional." The remarks came as Iranian lawmakers debated for a second straight day the 21-member Cabinet proposed by Ahmadinejad. They are to vote on the list on Wednesday. Keshavar is one of three women Ahmadinejad has proposed for his government.
