Taliban Again Orders Closure of Schools for Girls in Paktia. Female Students Protest

Saturday, 09/10/2022

Female students of the secondary schools in Gardiz city of Paktia province protested against the closure of their schools for the second time by the Taliban on Saturday morning.

The students chanted slogans regarding the right to education in front of the provincial directorate of education of Paktia province.

Earlier this week, reports from Pakita had indicated that a few schools had been reopened for girls based on the residents’ demands in Gardiz city.

Since seizing power on August 15, 2021, the Taliban have stopped girls in Afghanistan from attending school for secondary education.

The Taliban’s ban on girls’ secondary education has been met with widespread domestic and international criticism while global rights organisations have continuously called on the group to reopen girls’ schools across Afghanistan.
