No School Left Behind: Taliban Blows Up School for Girls in Pakistan

The Taliban gave the world another example of why its educational programs are so low cost and effective. In the Khyber District of Pakistan the Taliban blew up a girls’ school. This was a moderate response for the organization, which is known to throw acid in the faces of girls trying to go to school.

This was the ninth educational institution blown up in Khyber over the past six weeks.

Many families in the area support the Taliban and its medieval views of women. It is an example of the type of violence that many fear will spread throughout Pakistan as the government cracks down on the Taliban.
