Taliban Campaign Against Schools

A branch of the Taliban in Pakistan is bombing girls’ schools on the border regions, according to the Telegraph, something that has already been done in Afghanistan, where 61 teachers have been killed and 183 schools destroyed in the last year and a half.

Only one percent of women on the border region of Pakistan receive an education currently.
