New Term

Description

The daily struggles of two schools in the West Bank, King Talal Boys' School and Hajja Rushda Girls' School, display the pressures of life in Palestine under Israeli occupation.

The optimism of a new term is quickly forgotten as a teachers' strike and problems with angry parents, desperate for places for their children, quickly develop for the respective heads.

In a city plagued by frequent fierce street battles, the head of the boys' school is worried about the safety of his pupils as many have been killed and imprisoned in recent years.

This series has been filmed exclusively from one perspective. You might be interested in two other programmes, Little Peace of Mine and Inspirations - Oasis of Peace, that explore how education is being used to build bridges between the Israelis and Palestinians.

Part of the series: Two Schools in Nablus
