Municipality transfers less to East Jerusalem schools than the budget provided by the Education Ministry.


A pupil in a municipal high school in East Jerusalem gets less than half the funding of his counterpart in the western part of the capital, according to the Jerusalem municipality’s budget.

In fact, there are East Jerusalem schools that don’t even get the funds that the Education Ministry gives the city for them, as is shown by an analysis of the budget [...]

A comparison of every clause in the budget indicates that the funding for the western Jerusalem school is immeasurably higher than that of its East Jerusalem counterpart.

[...] Moreover, a check of the funds transferred by the Education Ministry indicates that Arab schools do not get the amount allocated to them by the ministry.
