Israel to lengthen school-day, exhaust students to prevent demonstrations

PNN/ Ramallah/

Haaretz Israeli newspaper on Wednesday unveiled a plan for the Israeli municipality to finance “long educational day” at high schools in East Jerusalem, to prevent the student demonstrations and stone-throwing at the end of it.

The newspaper said that the Israeli municipality and the Ministry of Education, in coordination with the Israeli police decided to impose the long day on males only, by adding classes of computer studies, sciences, sports, arts and music, besides the normal classes, to stall the educational day and exhaust students.

The newspaper added that the police prepared this plan at the middle of the last school year, under claims that demonstrations and stone- throwing against the Israeli cars increased after the normal school day.
