Safe and comprehensive.
It also considered that “the delay in the return of girls to secondary schools threatens to marginalize them in terms of education and, later, in life. This increases the risk of them leaving education completely, and exposes them to negative coping mechanisms such as early marriage.”

“Our commitment to Afghan children is clear, and our collective responsibility is to ensure that the fundamental right to education is fully respected for all of them,” she concluded.
It is noteworthy that ten days after the reopening of private universities in the country, the Afghan Ministry of Education announced on Friday that “all male teachers and students” at the secondary level will return to school today, without mentioning any female teachers or students.
This decision alarmed thousands of Afghan women and reminded us of the ghost of the past 20 years ago, when the extremist movement ruled the country, preventing women from working or educating, and imposing its oppressive teachings and laws on them.
