Demonstration at Gush Etzion School


There was a demonstration, Tuesday morning, outside the gates of the Gush Etzion Regional School in Alon Shvut, where parents are striking the senior age group over the Education Ministry's appointment of a principal from the outside, just before the start of the school year. The parents called on the ministry to keep the previous principal and not to let the new principal into the school.

In an announcement Monday night, the school's parent committee and the Gush Etzion and the Gush Etzion Regional Council accused the court system of imposing the new principal on the school, claiming he had been disqualified from being principal at three other schools. They also called to have more of a say in the appointment of the principal.
