Nearly half of Afghanistan's children are not attending school because of worsening security, poverty and sex discrimination, according to a new U.N. report Sunday.The number of children deprived of schooling is at its highest rate since 2002 -- the year after the U.S.-led ouster of the repressive Taliban regime, which had banned girls from the classroom.Girls remain more likely to miss out on a formal education, making up 60 percent of the 3.7 million children aged between seven and 17 not at school.
