Since 2010, hundreds of children have entered the school system – most for the first time. One third of them are girls. Women are again allowed to teach, and some are even principals. Slowly but surely, the educational system is being rebuilt. The reality,
however, is that there are large gaps in the system, especially when it comes to girls. Recent data indicates that girls are still substantially under-represented among the students flooding the Balochistan education system. When school re-started in 2010, most girls began in the 1st grade. It is only recently that we are seeing girls ready for high school. As this demand increases, schools need to be expanded to accommodate the full range of classrooms needed for grades 1-12.
