With the return of Afghan refugees from Pakistan, the Ministry of Higher Education said that they will provide education opportunities for the returnee students in government and private universities.
The spokesman for the ministry said that along with students, they will also provide work opportunities for teachers at universities.
The Ministry of Education also emphasized that they are ready to provide education for newly returned students.
The Ministry of Higher Education shared a report that said the ministry will provide higher education opportunities to returnee students based on their educational background in governmental and private universities.
The spokesman of the ministry said that among the students, they will also provide teaching opportunities to scholars in various provinces.
“All students who have not finished their studies, with an evaluation of their educational documents, the education opportunity in the universities will be provided for them, and for the teachers after their evaluation who have high talent and competence, opportunities will be provided for them,” said Ziaullah Hashemi, the spokesman of the Ministry of Higher Education.
Some of the teachers said they considered specialized and experienced cadres in the country's educational institutions a positive step.
“These cadres that are out of the country, if they return back to the country and can provide services for the people of the community, I think it will play an important role in the development of the country,” said Kahled Habibi, a university professor.
At the same time, the Ministry of Education said that this ministry is ready to provide facilities in the educational sector to returnee students from Pakistan.
According to the ministry's spokesman, a committee has also been set up to better deal with the issue.
“To educate Afghan returnees' children and to ease their problems, the Ministry of Education has been set up for basic and secondary subjects, including the head of a five member committee with the authority to provide care for returnees' children in different provinces and schools,” said Mansour Ahmad Hamza, Director of Publications and Public Relations of the Education Ministry.
This comes with the arrival of the deadline of Pakistan’s interim government, and as thousands of refugees are returning to the country and seeking help from the Islamic Emirate.
