The Role of the International Community

International funding has been consistently applied to the education system of the Palestinian Authority. UNRWA runs schools and teacher education institutions, European countries and UNESCO have been involved in rewriting schoolbooks, and the European Commission always gave education (amongst a list of other items) as uses of aid funds to the Palestinian Authority.

Not really understanding the meaning of this improvement, and whether international funding had been successfully used to create an environment with a potential for peace, a small group of volunteers decided to find out for themselves.

There is so much contradictory material, that it is not surprising that even the experts are confused.

So, we pursued the subject until we were physically were provided with some of the schoolbooks so we could reach our own conclusions. Our findings are documented in this website.
