Afghanistan’s girls lament continued closure of high schools (Ali M Latifi, Al Jazeera)

Kabul resident Rahela Nussrat, 17, is in her final year of high school, but she has not been able to attend classes. The reason: Afghanistan’s new rulers have decided to keep teenage girls off schools for now.

Last month, the Taliban announced the opening of schools, but only boys were asked to return to school, leaving out girls from the same age group. The move has raised questions about the group’s policy about women’s education.
