Happy Labor Day: Palestinian teachers on strike

A step for progressive politics and civil society in Palestine?


RAMALLAH, West Bank (AFP) – A strike by Palestinian teachers and other state employees demanding payment of back wages has entered its second day, crippling ministries and schools across the Palestinian territories.

I would suggest that the U.S. step in to help with the teachers' salaries, but considering our leaders' treatment of public schools here, they might just send school vouchers so kids can study in the “school of their choice.”
