Anyone going against the laws of the Taliban would be shot by them.
Afghanistan is one of the worst affected countries by violence against schools, with 670 incidents of attacks on education in 2008. Violence on students have prevented close to 5 million afghan children from attending school in year 2010. In terms of death rates, Afghanistan had 439 teachers, education employees and students killed in 2006-9, one of the highest in the world
The Taliban was disposed from Afghanistan in 2001. Yet this article by The Guardian in 2006 states that Taliban insurgents are battling Natotroops and that some 200,000 Afghan children had been forced out of school this year by threats and violence
Since 2002, the number of girls attending school increased by over 30 percent; however, an estimated 1.5 million school-age girls are still not enrolled in classes. UNICEF reported that 34 percent of children enrolled in school are girls, although this figure hides large disparities from province to province, with enrollment as low as 15 percent in some areas.
Since the Taliban regime was toppled in 2001, up to 6 million girls and boys started attending school. In 2012, the supply of students far exceeded the pool of qualified teachers.
According to statistics provided by the Ministry of Education, 80 percent of the country’s 165,000 teachers have achieved the equivalent of a high school education or did not complete their post-secondary studies
