|Subject: Afghan Watchdog: U.S. Pays Millions for No-Show Teachers, Students Thu Nov 10, 2016 12:09 am|| |
|The independent U.S. watchdog for Afghanistan aid is out with a new report pointing to significant problems in the education sector, once thought to be one of the few bright spots in the faltering multi-billion-dollar American reconstruction effort.|
The report, by John Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, says that after visiting 25 schools in Herat province, auditors found crumbling school buildings and big discrepancies in student and teacher attendance.
The $868 million the U.S. has spent attempting to rebuild Afghanistan's education system investment may be at risk, Sopko concluded, in the latest of a series of downbeat reports that collectively raise questions about the 15-year-long American rebuilding project in Afghanistan.
