Developments in education sector is the key achievement during past 15 years that are gained by generous financial support of international society to the people and government of Afghanistan. Now, almost 8.9 million children are in schools, out of which 40% are girls.
In the past 18 years, unfortunately in presence of wide facilities, there has been less attention to education and teachers in Afghanistan which is a great concern for the future of the country and still there are many challenges the teachers are facing that have negative effects on the quality of education.
