Article on setbacks in Afghanistan’s education sector quotes AAN’s researcher Ali Adili, in response to his recent AAN dispatch on the education figures:

Ali Yawar Adili at the Afghanistan Analysts Network said there was huge mismanagement, citing the case of the Education Ministry printing thousands of incorrect school textbooks that now sit rotting in a Kabul storeroom.

“The numbers of children and the quality of teaching, and the number of teachers, they cannot be trusted,” he said.
