Break the Taliban By Building Schools

231
Pakistan recently marked the one-year anniversary of the brutal attack on the Army Public School that killed more than 140 students in Peshawar on Dec. 16, 2014. The massacre was a key turning point for Pakistan’s war on terror. After 838 Taliban attacks on schools, Dec. 16 finally brought the insurgency’s threat to students and teachers to the forefront of Pakistan’s consciousness. If the country is to move forward with a new generation of educated young people, the education system must receive the investment and improvements it desperately needs.
