European diplomats visit educational institutions in Palestin.
Jerusalem - WAFA

At the start of the new academic year, a group of European diplomats visited two Palestinian schools near East Jerusalem in the occupied West Bank. The delegation included representatives of the European Union, EU Member States, Norway and Switzerland. The delegation was briefed on the educational situation and the challenges facing students and schools.

The delegation visited two schools near East Jerusalem in the occupied West Bank: Qalandia UNRWA Girls School No. 1 and Abu Nuwar elementary school.

In Qalandia, UNRWA briefed the delegation on the challenging environment in which the school, the teachers and the pupils have to operate. Teachers voiced concern about the impact of incursions and clashes on their students' emotional and psychosocial well-being, citing this as a key factor of poor academic achievement and behavioral issues in the classroom.

This is intensified by the impoverishment of many families, which is an underlying factor of school dropouts, particularly among boys. Qalandia refugee camp is located in the  Area C of the West Bank on the outskirts of East Jerusalem, near the main checkpoint between Ramallah and Jerusalem.

UNRWA-run schools for hundreds of thousands of Palestinian children across Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria re-opened over the past weekend. The EU and Member States are collectively the largest contributors to UNRWA's work in providing essential services to Palestine refugees.

The second school visited lies in Abu Nuwar and receives support from international NGOs with EU-funding. Abu Nuwar's school infrastructure has been repeatedly targeted since 2016. Parts of the school were demolished and confiscated five times by Israeli authorities, forcing children to follow classes in temporary learning spaces provided by NGOs, the Palestinian Authority and inhabitants.

The Bedouin and refugee community is located in Area C on the outskirts of Jerusalem and the school is still facing threats of demolition. Currently, around 50 schools in the West Bank are under threat of demolition, impeding the right to education.
