Education Report 2011 - The East Jerusalem School System


The East Jerusalem school system has suffered from severe neglect for many years. Any solution, therefore, will require a deep overhaul and a comprehensive long-term plan to overcome the ongoing failure of the authorities. Although there has been some progress recently, change has come decades too late and, for the moment, is moving too slowly. This paper represents an annual update on the status of various aspects of the education system. Ir Amim and ACRI continue to monitor, document and act for the full realization of the basic constitutional right of the tens of thousands of children of East Jerusalem for adequate education.
