Jewish teachers enter Arab classrooms in bid to break down barriers

Most Arab students in Israel can go through 12 years of school without meeting a Jew, according to Yaniv Sagee, CEO of an Arab-Israeli education program called "Yehiye Beseder," Hebrew for “It will be OK." The program has Jewish teachers giving Hebrew lessons to students in Arab schools and is the fruit of a collaboration between the Education Ministry and the Givat Haviva Non Profit Organization, which is dedicated to promoting civic equality and cooperation between divided groups in Israel.
