Sexual Harassment in Schools
Sexual harassment in school is a daily reality for girls across the UK. Sexual harassment can include a wide variety of things. It can be verbal including making indecent remarks about someone’s appearance, gender, sexual orientation or sex life, or making requests or demands for sexual favours. It can be non-verbal including staring, whistling, teeth kissing, clicking, gestures. This also includes displaying sexually explicit material or sending indecent messages. It can be physical including touching, pinching, and sexual assault. It can be a one-off incident or a persistent pattern of behaviour, and can occur in the street, on public transport to or from school and within school itself. The accounts in this film were collected from real girls across the UK, but to protect their identity their names and voices have been changed. Their stories may seem extreme, but keep in mind that these kinds of things happen to girls as young as 11 or 12. If you think school should be a safe learning environment for everyone, share this film and sign Girlguiding's petition to end sexual harassment in schools for good. Disclaimer: Since the making of this film, Girlguiding have closed their petition. However, I would encourage you to get involved by writing to your MP/MSP about the impact of sexual harassment in school, and why compulsory sex and relationships education is so important. The statistics were taken from Girlguiding's Girls' Attitudes Survey, an annual survey (the biggest of its kind) which has unique insight into the lives of girls today. https://www.girlguiding.org.uk/social-action-advocacy-and-campaigns/research/girls-attitudes-survey/

Improved Schools Increase Girls' Education Enrollment in Afghanistan
In Afghanistan's southeastern Khost city, the construction of a school building has boosted girls' enrollment. The Matoon Sarnakot Secondary School received support from the Education Quality Improvement Program (EQUIP) for building construction, which replaced tents. The improved facilities have encouraged more parents to send their children to school, especially girls whom make up 650 out of 1,400 students. It is one of 38 schools that have received construction support and 365 schools in Khost Province that has benefited from the EQUIP program. *** TRANSCRIPT Every morning, students line up in the school yard of Matoon Sarnakot Secondary School, and listen to the recitation of the holy Quran before going to their classes in single file in the building built by the Education Quality Improvement Program. Before the building was built, students studied in tents in the open. [Malmir Eamal, Principal, Matoon Sarnakot Secondary School ] The school was inaugurated in 2010. In the beginning there were only 300 to 350 students enrolled. But the numbers increased and today we have 1,400 male and female students enrolled. We used to hold classes in the afternoon in hot weather. It was 2013 when the program built our school building, which has made life much easier for us. We feel protected from the weather and the studies are going very well. The new school building has enhanced the learning environment and encouraged more children to enroll. Student enrollment has been boosted by the increase in girls enrolling Today 650 out of the 1,400 students are girls. [Abdul Nasir Haqmal, Provincial Program Officer, Khost province] There are 365 schools active in Khost Province. Thanks Allah Almighty, to date we do not have any schools that are closed throughout the province and it shows the development of education in our society. [Sabrina, Student, Matoon Sarnakot Secondary School] Our teachers come on time, sign their attendance sheet, and teach us according to our schedules. Our school management and the teachers work together on all school affairs. When we didn’t have a school building, we used to study in tents and even on the ground with no cover. Now that we have a building, it feels good to study in the classrooms. The Education Quality Improvement Program, which closed on December 31, 2017 worked to increase access to quality basic education, especially for girls, across the country. It was first funded by the World Bank and was co-financed by the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund.

UK schools to question Muslim girls wearing headscarf
UK schools to question Muslim girls wearing headscarf Britain's primary school inspectors will question girls who wear the Muslim headscarf at school, the head of the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) announced over the weekend. Amanda Spielman explained the move was to tackle situations in which wearing a headscarf "could be interpreted as sexualization" of school children. Spielman's announcement, which came as a recommendation not yet added to the inspectors' official handbook, advises schools to record pupils' responses to questions as to why they wear the hijab to school. "While respecting parents' choice to bring up their children according to their cultural norms, creating an environment where primary school children are expected to wear the hijab [headscarf] could be interpreted as sexualization of young girls," Spielman said. "In seeking to address these concerns, and in line with our current practice in terms of assessing whether the school promotes equality for their children, inspectors will talk to girls who wear such garments to ascertain why they do so in the school," she added. Last week Spielman met with anti-headscarf campaigners, after a survey by British daily Sunday Times suggested that nearly a fifth of 800 state primary schools in 11 regions of England list the garment as part of their uniform policy, mostly as an optional item. The Muslim Council of Britain Secretary-General Harun Khan quickly responded to the move. "It is deeply worrying that Ofsted has announced it will be specifically targeting and quizzing young Muslim girls who choose to wear the headscarf," he said. "It sends a clear message to all British women who adopt this that they are second-class citizens that while they are free to wear the headscarf, the establishment would prefer that they do not," Khan said. "It is disappointing that this is becoming policy without even engaging with a diverse set of mainstream Muslim voices on the topic," he added. In reference to the 2014 "Trojan horse" affair that provoked fear of extremist influence in U.K. schools, Khan urged "any parent or member of the public who has a concern about fundamentalist groups influencing school policy, or breaching equality law to make a complaint to the school." "If schools do not act on these complaints, they can be made to Ofsted directly," he said. Since 2014, Ofsted and the Department for Education have mandated schools teach and adhere to core British values. Attempts to enforce this policy have led to turmoil over restrictive measures and undue questioning of students at Islamic faith schools. The 2014 Birmingham Trojan horse scare occurred after a photocopy of a fake letter describing terrorists' plans to take over a school was leaked to the media. While the letter was quickly discredited, the idea took root, stirring panic that such a situation might occur in the future.
