塔利班毀諾
阿富汗禁女生讀中學

  The Taliban is facing international condemnation after they announced that girls would not be allowed to attend secondary school, despite its previous assurances. The backtracking by the Taliban means female students above the sixth grade will not be able to attend school.
  The surprise announcement came late on the night of March 22nd. Many teachers and pupils found out the next morning on the first day of the school year in Afghanistan. After a six-month break in school caused by the turmoil in the country, some girls returned to schools, only to be told to go home.
  A Ministry of Education notice said that schools for girls would be closed until a plan was drawn up in accordance with Islamic law and Afghan culture. The abrupt about-face revived worries that the Taliban might keep teenage girls away from education indefinitely.

 塔利班之前雖然曾一再保證,現在卻突然宣布不准女生上中學,因此面臨國際譴責。塔利班出爾反爾的決定意味著六年級以上的女學生將不得上學。
 此一公告出其不意在三月二十二日晚間發出,許多老師和學生在隔天早上才得知,這一天正好是阿富汗學校第一天開學,各地學校因為動亂中斷六個月之後重開,眾多女學生準備前往上學。部分女孩到校之後,卻被告知回家去。
 教育部發布通告指出,在符合伊斯蘭律法和阿富汗文化的計畫定案之前,女子學校將繼續關閉。突如其來的逆轉也重新引發各界憂慮,塔利班有可能永遠不准青少女接受教育。
