Thank you Mariam for a great talk. As a fellow female Afghan in the field of Psychology, I am very impressed with your passion and acknowledgment that teachers need to incorporate many different teaching methods in the classroom in order to target different methods of learning.

Brave Speech Mariam! I am also graduated from Psychology faculty of Kabul University. To be honest, I learned nothing during the four years and just wasted four years. My cousin who study in Kabul Medical University says that KMU professors copypaste the USEurope universities professor's textbooks and then translate contexts into DariPashto. I think all professors who do this should start education all over again. The system has to be changed, the teachers should get education in foreign countries. The old curriculum should be replaced with a new curriculum. This way, we can reform the old and ineffective educational system.09/01/2014
