UN report urges Afghanistan to recruit female teachers locally to boost girls' education



“In Afghanistan, female teachers are vital for girls to be able to enroll in school, but women face cultural barriers in seeking work in areas where they are not chaperoned by family members,” according to the ‘Education for All Global Monitoring Report,' released globally by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).


UNESCO's 11th flagship report also said that South and West Asia is home to four of the countries 

with the “highest gender disparities globally.”


With 71 girls in school for every 100 boys, Afghanistan is one of the countries with very high disparities at the expense of girls, the report noted. Other countries in the region with similar challenges are Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal.


“Local recruitment has its benefits, such as teachers' greater acceptance of a rural posting and reduced attrition, but some of the most disadvantaged communities lack competent applicants where access to primary schooling is low, as is the case in Afghanistan,” the report said.
