Many Afghan families have called on the Taliban to reopen schools for girls above grade 6. The Taliban closed down most schools in Afghanistan when they took power in 1996, citing religious reasons. However, in recent years, the Taliban has allowed some schools for girls to reopen, but only up to grade 6.
Families are urging the Taliban to reverse their stance and allow girls to attend school beyond grade 6. They argue that education is essential for girls’ development and future success. They also point out that denying girls access to education is a violation of their human rights.
The Afghan government has also called on the Taliban to allow girls to attend school beyond grade 6. In addition, various international organizations, such as UNICEF and the World Bank, have urged the Taliban to provide girls with access to education.
It remains to be seen if the Taliban will reverse their stance and allow girls to attend school beyond grade 6. However, Afghan families continue to hope that the Taliban will listen to their pleas and provide girls with access to education.
