Afghan schools open for boys and girls, but they are subject to conditions | Abroad

Tomorrow all schools in Afghanistan will open again for boys and girls. This was stated by the Ministry of Education. For the first time since the Taliban came to power, girls over the age of 12 will be able to go to school, but under certain conditions.

For example, boys and girls will be taught in different school buildings, girls will have to wear headscarves and they will be taught only by female teachers. In places where it is not possible to teach in different premises, the study time will be distributed to boys and girls.

Until now, girls could only go to primary school. Secondary schools were open only to girls in a few counties. In most places, including the capital, Kabul, girls basically have to stay at home.

Under national and international pressure, the Taliban promised to return the girls to school at the start of the new school year. When the ultra-conservative group was in power from 1996 to 2001, education for girls and women was outlawed. Many are afraid of going back to that system.
