Samaria Student Population Up 10 Percent


The Samaria (Shomron) Regional Council reported a record increase of about ten percent in the number of students opening the school year on Thursday. Because of Defense Ministry delays in construction approval, the council installed 60 temporary buildings to handle the increase.

The council region represents more than 11 percent of the area of Israel and its 800 school bus lines are the most of any local government entity.
