Amidst several discussions in Afghanistan over the Taliban decree banning secondary schools for girls, the Nimroz education department has agreed to reinstate female teachers in the school.
The Nimroz education department has confirmed that all female Afghan teachers who lost their jobs after the fall of the Afghan government will once again be employed at schools in need, Tolo News reported.
"Soon the reappointment of 196 teachers may occur," said Mawlawi Yar Mohammad Haqyar, the director of the Nimroz education department.
According to Nimroz school officials and teachers, they are facing a shortage of female teachers in the province, reported Tolo news.
Reportedly, Afghan female teachers who lost their jobs sang praises to the Ministry of Education for their decision to re-employing female teachers.
One of the female teachers, Ms Lima, said that she was unable to teach for the last eight months. Ms Lima had also called upon local Afghan officials in Nimroz to give her and other fellow teachers work opportunities, reported Tolo news.
"The Islamic Emirate has provided the opportunity for us to return to our duty without an exam. I am very happy and I ask the teachers who have left to come back," urged Ms Lima.
Worldwide condemnation of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan had heightened after they decided to close all secondary schools for girls. Several activists and political parties have urged the Taliban to reconsider the ban on secondary schools for girls.
However, the Taliban's Ministry of Education has assured that the schools for girls in grades 7-12 will be reopened in the near future.
