Photo of the day – Mar. 28, 2013

Pakistani schoolchildren attend their daily classes in a makeshift school set in a clay house, in a poor neighborhood on the outskirts of Islamabad, Pakistan, Wednesday, March 27, 2013. Threats from militant groups is one of many obstacles Pakistani girls and teachers face in getting and providing an education. Others include rampant poverty, harassment and the government’s failure to prioritize education spending. Both sexes have suffered from the lack of funding, but girls, who have lower rates of literacy and school attendance, are in a particularly perilous position. Muhammed Muheisen/AP
