Fragmented foundations: education and chronic crisis in the Occupied Palestinian Territory
This book examines the emergence, development and management of the education system in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) between 1994 and 2005. The study draws lessons from the Palestinian context of occupation and chronic conflict, both for the benefit of educational planners in the OPT and in order to support others working in similar contexts. It focuses on the issues to be tackled in emergency and reconstruction situations, as well as in chronic conflict. These include: - development of ministry administration;- budget allocation;- donor co-ordination and support;- ensuring access and inclusion;- school construction;- curriculum and textbook development; and- teacher recruitment and development.
