Teaching in Pakistan's conservative society, a risky businessListen /
The value of educating a girl is not well understood in conservative areas of Pakistan, according to the Director of the Khushal School and College in Swat.
Mariam Khalique is also a teacher of Malala Yousafzai, the student and education activist shot by the Taliban last year. The Taliban used to control Swat Valley, in northwestern Pakistan, enforcing Islamic law until Pakistani forces drove them out.
Ms. Khalique told UNICEF's Alex Goldmark what lessons can be learned from Malala's tragic shooting.
