The Afghan education system suffers greatly form lack of qualified educators to bring quality education to the students of Afghanistan. There are many reasons for this, prominent among them being talent flight due to prolonged conflict and instability, low teacher salaries and lack of training to prepare teachers for modern education systems. According to the World Bank “only four in 10 teachers showed evidence of mastering fourth grade language curriculum and fewer than 40 percent of teachers showed evidence of mastering fourth grade mathematics curriculum”. This crisis in education is directly related to lack of professional and well trained teachers.
In order to help the Department of Education in Kandahar, the Academy has provided training to more than 1200 teachers and educators.
