Silencing Palestine in the Education System
Silencing Palestine in the Education System

Sat. Nov. 19, 1 PM ET

The webinar will explore how Palestine is covered in Israeli textbooks as well as Palestinian education in East Jerusalem and the West Bank/Gaza.

In a bid to stop Canadian funding for Palestinian refugee education the Israel lobby regularly disparages Palestinian education. Is their criticism valid?

Alongside UNRWA-funded Palestinian education, speakers will explore how Palestine is treated in the Canadian education system.

There have been many examples of anti-Palestinian racism in Canadian schools and the Israel lobby has promoted schools adopting the IHRA’s anti-Palestinian definition of anti-Semitism.
