In August, the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) released a report titled "Failed Grade: East Jerusalem's Failing Educational System." It's grim reading. It shows how Palestinian children are  marginalized and deprived.

For tens of thousands of E. Jerusalem children, school began in late August. Inadequate educational services are provided. It's underfunded and substandard. Kids deserving better don't get it.

Unsuitable classrooms are provided. Some are in residential buildings. Thousands don't get the chance for school at all. Around 40% of others end up dropping out before graduating.

Education is supposed to be free. Many families have to pay tuition to unofficial learning institutions. Most can't afford it but do it anyway. Nearly 80% of the population is impoverished.
