Officially Out of Order: The Education System in Silwan


This report reviews the condition of educational infrastructure in the neighborhood of Silwan in East Jerusalem, and demonstrates how statistics indicating the state of the educational system in East Jerusalem as a whole manifest in the lives of children and their parents. This report was written alongside Ir Amim’s and the Association for Civil Rights in Israel’s annual monitoring report, published in August 2012, and it serves as a case study for understanding the stories behind the statistics.
