The parental committee of schoolchildren on Tuesday suspended work in three schools in Occupied Jerusalem in protest at the Israeli municipality’s attempts to impose its curriculums and its refusal to improve the school administrations and infrastructure.
Three schools were closed yesterday in the areas of Silwan, Issawiya and Shuafat, east Jerusalem.
An official from the parental committee in Shuafat said that the strike was staged to protest a series of arbitrary measures pursued every year by the Israeli municipality against the Palestinian educational sector.
He added that Israel’s attempt to impose changes in textbooks on Palestinian schools in Jerusalem as well as its refusal to improve their administrations and infrastructure were among the reasons that prompted the committee to stage the strike.
