Equality and Inclusion of the Palestinian Minority in Mixed Israeli Schools: A Case Study of Jaffa's Weizman School
Leoncini, Sabina
London Review of Education, v12 n3 p274-285 Nov 2014
The Israeli education system is primarily shaped by the religious nature of the state, although there are some mixed schools where both Palestinian and Israeli children learn together. Jaffa is unique within the system due to its history and its Palestinian minority, and the Weizman School is an interesting case as parents are particularly involved in the school's choices. Several initiatives in Jaffa aim to cultivate a multicultural and egalitarian education, and their differing results are discussed here. The article suggests new directions for the future, taking into consideration the viewpoints that emerge from the interviews with teachers and parents.
