Kabul: Head of provincial education department Mawlawi Ismail Abu Ahmad has said political conflicts in the region have caused closure of schools depriving 30,000 students from schooling.
“All schools have been damaged. There have been bombardments. Schools have been used as outposts for the public uprising and police forces. But the schools are active now and the students have been studying there,” Ahmad was quoted as saying by the Afghan Voice Agency.
Alchin is one such institution where once forces of the Taliban and former government engaged in fierce fighting.
The school is now under construction.
“With the reconstruction of this school, approximately 2,000 students will get access to education,” Abdul Hafiz, an official at the education department in, told the news agency.
