①『Nothing gives principal Suraya Sarwary more pleasure than the sound of her second-grade girls reciting a new lesson out loud. Six years ago, that sound could have gotten her executed. The Taliban had outlawed education for girls, but a few brave teachers taught them in secret. Sarwary, now the principal of Karokh District Girls High school in Afghanistan’s Heart province, recalls gathering students furtively in her home and imparting lessons in whispers for fear that her neighbors might report her to the Taliban.』
②『There is no playground or running water. The toilet, a pt latrine located at the far corner of the school compound, serves 1,500 students. Only two of the 23 female teachers have graduated from high school. Half the second-grade students, ranging in age from 7 to 12, can read; the rest just recite from memory. The freedom to study is a blessing, but Sarwary knows it is not nearly enough. “Our students have talent and a passion for learning I’ve never seen before”, says the slim, stylish 33-year-old.”
“But we still have problems.” 』The parlous status of girls’ education belies one of the greatest hopes raised when the Taliban was toppled by U.S-led forces in 2001: the liberation of Afghanistan’s women.
③『The Taliban policy of keeping girls out of school was based on a strong cultural prohibition against women mix with unrelated men. Those tradition still define large swaths of Afghan society―even in urban areas like Kabul. “My family says that they would rather I be illiterate than be taught by a man”, says Yasamin Rezzaie, 18, who is learning dressmaking at a women’s center in Kabul. Her parents refused to let her go to her neighborhood school because some of the teachers are male. Both her parents are illiterate, and they don’t see the need for her to learn to read when the risk of meeting unrelated men is so high. 』 While struggling to build the new infrastructure, educators must also contend with Afghanistan’s old demons: the Taliban is making a comeback in several provinces and reimposing its’ rules. In little over a year, 130 schools have been burned, 105 students and teachers killed and 307 schools closed down because of security concerns. ― WITH REPORTING BY ALI SAFI/KABUL
