Girls excluded as Afghan secondary schools reopen

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

The Taliban have excluded girls from Afghan secondary schools, after they ordered only boys and male teachers to return to the classroom.

A statement from the Islamist group saying secondary classes would resume made no mention of girls or women.

One Afghan schoolgirl told the BBC she was devastated. "Everything looks very dark," she said.

Despite Taliban promises it is the latest sign Afghanistan is returning to the harsh rule of the 1990s.

In another development, on Friday the Taliban appeared to have shut down the women's affairs ministry and replaced it with a department that once enforced strict religious doctrines.

They are excluding half of the brains and talent of their country.  They are cutting the workforce and talent pool in half but still have the same population to feed and house.  It does not sound like a formula for prosperity.
