Hamal 3rd (March 23rd) marks the beginning of the new educational year and the reopening of schools across Afghanistan but secondary and high schools for girls were announced to be suspended until second notice.

The announcement was given by the Ministry of Education of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan right on the very morning of the resumption of schools.

The announcement is not yet seen by the media but the ministry was quoted by Bakhtar News Agency (Government News Agency).

“All those schools that teach girls’ classes upper than grade six are hereby informed that secondary and high schools are suspended until second notice. The schools will reopen after the leadership of the IEA make a decision over the uniform of female students. The uniform will be in accordance with Sharia law and Afghan tradition.” Reads the piece of the announcement made public by BNA.

Earlier, the Ministry of Education had said that all schools both for boys and girls will reopen on Hamal 3rd asking the female students and teachers to observe the hijab.

Last year, only girls up to grade sixth were allowed to attend classes while boys were allowed to all levels of schooling.
