Inauguration of Mechanical High School

Since education is one of the basic needs of human societies, unfortunately, during the three decades of war and insecurity in most parts of the country, students have less access to schools or no educational facilities, despite the fact that Martyr Ahmad Shah Massoud, the national hero of the country in the areas under his control, in the most difficult days of the war, paid deep attention to the reopening of schools, lessons and education of the children of the country; As in the era of jihad and resistance, most schools were active and students were engaged in teaching and learning. After the establishment of the interim administration in the country, a large number of schools and colleges are active throughout the country and millions of children and adolescents are engaged in education.
