Teachers absent from Pakistan 'ghost schools'

Ghost schools make up ten percent of schools in Sindh, a reflection of the country's poor education record.

    Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai says being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize will help her campaign for education.

    However, her country has a poor record and in some areas one of the biggest problems is getting teachers to turn up to work. 

    Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston reports from Sindh Province.
