In this report, following a Save The Children report on education shortcomings in Afghanistan, the authors also quote AAN’s Ali Yawar Adili who also has recently written about exaggerated schooling figures, ghost schools and other phenomena marring the country’s education system:

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.
