Between January 2018 and June 2020, Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) research showed that Palestinian children in the West Bank contended with a deluge of attacks on education, at a crushing pace of 10 attacks per month, on average.
Across the 30-month reporting period, NRC analysis of a multi-source dataset found that 296 attacks against education by Israeli forces or settlers and settlement private security guards took place during 235 separate incidents.
Children in the West Bank should be able to safely access their education without impediments, threats, violence, or fear. In addition to harming children’s ability to safely access schools, attacks on education undermine children’s psychological state, which can lead to poorer learning outcomes and hinder their ability to realise their full potential.
