School Drama

Written on 10/19/2011

The school was abuzz today with news that one of our students got married yesterday. The girl is only 14 and in the 10th grade and has married a man in the village. I couldn’t figure out how old the husband is, but as he is not a student in our school I’m guessing he must be older than 18. Apparently there used to be a law that once women were married, they could no longer attend public school, but even now that the law has been changed, many girls still don’t go to school once they get married. I’m not sure what this girl will do, but the teachers were quite upset all day that she could have run off and done something so stupid.
