Education for a Tolerant Nation

This week, schools in Israel are reopening their doors for a new academic year. At ACRI, we work to ensure that everyone, regardless of their background, fully enjoys their right to education and opportunity via both legal and pedagogic educational activity.

In doing so, ACRI impacts education on multiple fronts, promoting anti-racism and human rights within the education system and demanding equality in resources and educational services for vulnerable populations, including: Palestinian children in East Jerusalem, children of asylum seekers in Tel Aviv, and the Negev Bedouin.

Recent legal interventions include:

We demand to create a safe infrastructure around elementary schools for Palestinians in East Jerusalem. Learn more

We demand to end segregation in educational institutions for children of asylum seekers in Tel Aviv. Learn more

We demand to install shading on the sports field at the Abu Karinat elementary school for the Bedouin population in the Negev. Learn more

We demand the Ministry of Education to allowthe inclusion of the Green Line on maps taught in schools. Learn more

ACRI believes that to foster a culture of human rights and bring about lasting social change in Israel, the educational system must advance the same key values we advocate for in the legal and public arenas. Awareness and appreciation for human and civil rights must be promoted early on, widely, and among all sectors of Israeli society. Donate today.

ACRI’s Education Department conducts human rights training programs for thousands of educators across the country each year, produces high-quality educational curricula in Hebrew and Arabic, and organizes conferences and lectures on human rights education.

By working with key agents of change – teachers in both the Jewish and Arab school systems, college and university students, security forces personnel, and social and community workers – ACRI effectively influences attitudes and contributes toward building a more tolerant and just society.
