Afghan girls go to school slowly, surely :: Fox

QUOTE\ President Bush often says “Girls go to school now” when touting the success of the U.S. military campaign that ousted the Taliban from Afghanistan. . . . But not everyone is convinced that America is doing all it can to ensure women receive an education in the region. According to UNICEF, 60 percent of Afghan girls under age 11 are not enrolled in school, even though 1,600 schools for girls have opened since 2001. /UNQUOTE
