Pakistani students, who were displaced with their families from Pakistan's tribal areas due to fighting between militants and the army, chant a song with their teacher, not pictured, during their daily school in a poor neighborhood on the outskirts of Islamabad, Pakistan, Friday, Oct. 19, 2012. A teenage activist recently shot and critically wounded by the Taliban risked her life to attend school, but the threat from the militant group is just one of many obstacles Pakistani girls face in getting 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. (AP Photo/Nathalie Bardou)
