A three-storey building for the Mohammad Asif Mayel School has 30 classrooms, an eight-room administrative block and 24 bathrooms.

It has the capacity to accommodate about 5,000 students, the director said, adding the school was located in the Mahtab Qala area.

Without giving details about the building for the Mohammad Ali Mustaghni School on the Darul Aman road, he said the students previously studied under tents.

A message from Second Vice-President Mohammad Karim Khalili was readout at the inaugural ceremony. He linked the economic development of the country to education.

Of the 14,000 schools across the country, 50 percent are facing severe problems, including lack of proper buildings.

Education Minister Ghulam Farooq Wardak said his ministry was taking serious steps to provide proper buildings for schools, a problem to be resolved over the next nine years.
