ASAP: We should be outraged and worried about Taliban denial of secondary schools for Afghan girls
March 23, 2022
Today, the first day of Afghanistan’s new school year, the Taliban announced their decision not to reopen schools for girls of secondary school age and older (sixth grade and up). We are of course outraged and worried about the fate of Afghan girls, who, like every human being on the planet deserve the opportunity to tap their full potential through learning. But, sadly, we are not surprised, and no one should be.
