The system of education in Afghanistan includes K-12 and Higher education. The K-12 and Higher education is supervised by the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Higher Education in Kabul, Afghanistan.

The system of education in Afghanistan is recovering after a long "rest". When Talobans ruled the country, between the years of 1996 and 2001 the educational situation in Afghanistan worsened.Between 2001 and 2009, primary school enrolment rose from 0.9 million to nearly 7 million (a sevenfold increase in eight years) and the proportion of girls from virtually zero to 37 per cent. Yet 42 per cent of the population of schoolchildren is still estimated to be out of school. The number of teachers in general education has risen sevenfold, but their qualifications are low and only 31 per cent are women.
