Students in the Afghan capital, Kabul, have expressed concerns over the lack of academic facilities and teachers, and complained that the situation has made it difficult for them to pursue education, Tolo news reported.
Student Muhammad Sultan said: “In winter, it is very cold in the classrooms, and that is why we demand the construction of school buildings for us.”
While a number of teachers said: “The Ministry of Education has not yet heeded the demands of meeting the basic needs of students, especially the academic buildings in the region.”
They stated that “most schools suffer from a shortage of teachers, not to mention that some of them are contract-employed and maybe terminated at any moment.”
Since the return of Taliban to power last year, the human rights situation has deteriorated in the midst of a nationwide economic, financial and humanitarian crisis.
