The deputy Minister of Education (MoE) said that 100,000 posts are expected to be created for school teachers in the near future in various provinces.
Mohammad Khalid Sadiq made the remarks in a graduation ceremony of 350 students from a high school in Kabul.
“240,000 people are working in the Education Ministry. All of them are serving the schools,” he said.
Speaking at the same ceremony, the principal of a high school named Zabihullah Esmatt urged the people to be cooperative with the Educational Ministry.
“The parents are not asking about their children’s status,” he said.
The graduates meanwhile called on the Islamic Emirate to provide the means for female education in the country.
“We call on Islamic Emirate officials to reopen the schools for our girls within the Islamic structure,” said Mansour, a high school graduate.
“We call on the government to reopen the schools for our sisters within a legal or Islamic structure, so they can study and have a bright future,” said Mohammad, a high school graduate.
Since the Islamic Emirate came to power, girl students beyond grade six have been banned from going to their schools.
