Arab Israelis join protest against cuts in funding for Christian schools

Arab students in Israel went on strike on September 7, in an expression of support for the country’s Christian schools.

The 400,000 striking students joined Church leaders in a protest against deep 45% cuts in government support for Christian schools. The budget cuts imperil the future of the Christian schools, which serve about 30,000 students but educate a disproportionate number of Israel’s top Arab scholars.
