Nijrab District, Kapisa Province, Afghanistan —
True, the American public school system has it’s problems, but THIS is a pic of school in Afghanistan. I’m just sayin’ …

Take a look at the picture. It’s a school in Nijrab district. A real, formal school. The teacher is obviously the one who is standing.

No running water.

No desks.

No WALLS.

No cafeteria.

No internet connection.

No WOMEN. (Although, there are separate women’s schools.)

I went to several schools as a child … all of them were public schools, and none of them really that great by American standards. But, at least I had walls and could get a meal there.

Of course, I would have preferred NOT going to a high school where police had to clear out the parking lot each day, but after hanging around the ‘stan, I’m thankful.
