Taliban leaders in Afghanistan said Wednesday that schools would remain closed to girls above sixth grade. 

Teachers and students from three Kabul high schools arrived at school on Wednesday morning, just to be sent home, The Hill reports.

“We inform all girls high schools and those schools that are having female students above class six that they are off until the next order,” a notice from the country’s ministry of education said. 

Last week, the Ministry of Education said all students would return to school Wednesday following months of education restrictions on girls. 

“The UN in Afghanistan deplores today’s reported announcement by the Taliban that they are further extending their indefinite ban on female  students above the 6th grade being permitted to return to school,” the United Nations’ Mission to Afghanistan said in a statement.
