National Arab school strike and protests next week if Christian school budget dispute not resolved

The Arab Higher Monitoring Committee met in the northern Israeli Arab city of Sakhnin on Monday and accepted a Joint List proposal presented by MK Yousef Jabareen (Hadash) to declare a strike in all Arab schools in the country next week if the strike continues.

The Committee would meet again next week to decide on a specific day for the nation-wide strike and protests. The Arab school strike would affect half a million students, Jabareen said.

Jabareen emphasized that “the planned general strike reflects the joint struggle of the entire Arab community against the continued discrimination of Christian schools.”
