SIGAR: Girls inability to attend secondary schools bar them from advancing to University level

by Matiullah Shirzad

The US Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) in its most recent report says that before the collapse of the Afghan government, the ministry of education reported that Afghan schools suffered from a lack of educational resources and shortage of teacher as well. That time the Afghan schools required at least 50,000 more teachers.

SIGAR adds that Afghan female students are allowed to participate segregated higher education institutions, but their inability to attend secondary schools is an effective obstacle to them to advance to the university level.
