In this Nov. 7, 2010 photo, Khan Agha, new Afghan police recruit, center, attends a literary class at Central Training Center on the outskirts of Kabul, Afghanistan. According to the NATO training mission, only 11 percent of the enlisted personnel in the army and police can read and write, compared to 35 percent for non-commissioned officers and 93 for the officer corps. About 74 percent of the population is illiterate, but the percentage in the security forces tends to be higher since fewer educated Afghans are willing to sign up. (AP Photo/Altaf Qadri)
