KABUL: The public universities were reopened on Saturday in cold areas all over the country following a six-month lull since the Islamic Emirate swept into power.
The Ministry of Higher Education established a new educational system through which the classes of girl and boy students are segregated.
The MoHE said on Saturday that at least 19 higher and middle educational centers were reopened in the cold areas of the country.
“The public universities and institutes were reopened today (Saturday),” said Ahmad Taqa, a spokesman for the MoHE.
The students appreciated the reopening of the universities.
“I am very happy today as the Islamic Emirate reopened our universities…”, said Razia Kamal, a student.
“Many of our instructors were absent; however, there were a couple of instructors,” said Hayatullah, a student.
Earlier, the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) announced that all public universities in cold areas would begin on February 26.
According to the students, the shortage of instructors to teach the classes at two different times is one of their main problems.
“Fortunately, girl and boy students are continuing their lessons in two different time shifts,” said Mujeeb Rahman Ahmadzai, a Kabul university instructor.
The students and instructors held ceremonies to celebrate the reopening of public universities in some provinces.
