The school year for boys and girls will begin in Afghanistan at the end of March.

The academic year in Afghanistan for both boys and girls will begin on the first day of the new year according to the country's solar Hijri calendar, that is after March 21st of this year. This was announced on Sunday by a representative of the Ministry of Education in the government formed by the radical Taliban movement (banned in the Russian Federation).

“The school year will begin on 1st day of the first month of 1401 [according to the solar Hijri calendar] for girls and boys of all educational levels,” said the representative ministry, quoted on his Twitter page by the representative of the Qatari political office of the Taliban Mohammad Naeem.

The first month of the new year comes in Afghanistan after the celebration of Nowruz, which falls on March 21, 2022.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Education added that "the girls' classes will be taught by women, and the boys' classes by men." In the absence of female teachers, he noted, girls' classes would have to be taught by "experienced male teachers of age." "Schools and times for boys and girls should be different," said the representative.

Classes in  Afghan universities and schools were suspended at the end of August last year after the Taliban seized power in the country. Junior schools resumed their work on September 19, however, only boys and male teachers were admitted to classes. Later, the radicals explained that girls and girls will be allowed to the educational process only after the preparatory work on separation of classes and rooms and distribution of teachers is completed in schools and universities.
