Afghan teachers defy the Taliban by secretly educating teenage girls

KABUL — A group of teenage girls quietly entered Fawzia’s house, took off their shoes, and gathered in the living room for a secret history lesson.

Fawzia, who asked to be identified only by her first name, spoke of Afghanistan’s legendary treasure, the Bactrian gold, and its former kings and queens. The 56-year-old teacher sees his new, secret job with teens as essential.
