Under Pressure

Description

The term continues in this unique series following the daily lives of two schools in Palestine as they struggle with the extraordinary pressures of life under occupation.

The schools are still struggling with teachers' issues despite the strike being halted, and the situation with over-crowded classrooms is exacerbated when the boys' school is landed with 42 more pupils.

Meanwhile, the strain increases for students Masar and Osaid, as both attempt to write essays while being caught up in the Israeli prison system, and there is trouble brewing as the families settle down for Iftar celebrations.

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
