A Final Comment

Deficiencies can be rectified. At issue is doing it. Promises made are broken. Palestinian children are hugely deprived. 

They need hundreds of unavailable classrooms, more teachers, educational materials, and a proper learning environment. What's in place is woefully inadequate, substandard, and in some cases unsafe.

Israeli authorities largely ignore Palestinian needs. They prioritize stealing their land for Jewish development. They're dispossessed and displaced in large numbers.

Education is a fundamental right. It's a societal bedrock. The futures of Palestinian children depend on it. It's much more than about classroom space. It's about teaching, learning, achievement, and preparation for later in life.

Longstanding Israeli policies trample on basic Palestinian rights. Substandard education deprives one generation after another. Responsible officials don't care. Their attitude reflects neglect and indifference.

Jerusalem's mayor, Municipality, and Ministry of Education bear full responsibility "to ensure an appropriate education for" East Jerusalem's children. Their report card gives them a "Failed Grade."
