Building new schools in East Jerusalem

October 20, 2011

Nir Barkat, Jerusalem’s mayor since November 2008, is beginning to change the reality in East Jerusalem. He is currently implementing a program to invest NIS 300,000,000 in the construction and equipping of new schools in the Arab sections of town, and while such things take time to move from the initial idea to completion, hundreds of new classrooms are in various stages of construction, thousands of PCs are being distributed, and various programs for students with special needs are being opened.

The gaps between the Jewish and Arab parts of town remain great, but they’re finally being purposefully narrowed.
