As many as 6,000 Afghan schools have no buildings, adding to problems that children face in getting an education in the war-torn country, officials said.
Afghanistan’s education system has made significant gains since the Taliban were ousted by U.S.-led forces in 2001. However, despite of that progress, about 6,000 schools in the country have no building facilities.
“Schools should have buildings, 6,000 thousand schools have no buildings facilities,” said Mia Gul Wasiq, the political and social relations Chief in Presidential Palace. ” The ministries of rural rehabilitation and housing have been ordered [in this regard] and are making efforts to resolve this issue.”
