PMW education report includes detailed chapter on schools named after terrorists

PMW  |
Palestinian Media Watch’s comprehensive report on Palestinian Authority education ‎was presented at the 7th World Congress of Education International (EI), the ‎international organization of teachers' unions, on July 21-26, 2015. ‎
PMW was invited by the Association of Secondary School Teachers in Israel, after the ‎association was notified that the congress, which brought together nearly 2,000 ‎teachers and educators from all over the world, planned to vote on several anti-Israel ‎resolutions that included calls for boycott of Israel and support for BDS. The ‎resolutions did not pass, due in large part to PMW efforts.‎
The first chapter of the report examines names of PA schools and exposes 25 schools ‎named after terrorists. For example, three schools are named after Dalal Mughrabi, ‎who led a bus hijacking in 1978 in which 37 civilians were killed, 12 of them children. ‎Three schools are also named after Abu Jihad, who planned the 1978 bus hijacking ‎that killed 37. ‎And another three schools are named after Salah Khalaf, who planned the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics (Sept. 5, 1972), and the murder of two American in Sudan (March 1, 1973).
