Occupied Jerusalem, (MINA) – The education sector in Occupied Jerusalem is exposed to a frenzied Judaization and Israelization campaign after the Israeli government has earmarked about 15 billion shekels to build schools and impose its curriculum on the Palestinians.
Director general of the education bureau in Jerusalem Samir Jebreel said that there was an official Palestinian plan to protect the Palestinian educational process in Jerusalem, PIC reported.
Jebreel explained that the plan includes efforts to curtail Israel’ funding for the private education sector through finding an alternative financial support and also to provide complete scholarships for Palestinian students from the Old City of Jerusalem and other neighborhoods.
The plan also aims to build schools, or rent or buy buildings to use them as schools for Palestinian students from the holy city and to support private kindergartens, the official added. $50 million has been allocated for the building of new schools in Jerusalem, according to him.(R/R04/RS5)
