Parents say that the city is not offering a satisfactory option for bilingual and integrated education of Jewish and Arab children in the mixed city.
Hundreds of Jewish and Arab parents and children from Jaffa protested in central Tel Aviv Friday morning to demand that the city provide them with an option to study in an integrated, bilingual school that treats both languages, cultures and the three monotheistic religions equally.
The parents claim that the arrangement being offered to them by the city is not actually equal and does not satisfy their needs.
There are only seven integrated, bilingual schools in all of Israel.
The protest, which took place in the main square outside Israel’s national theater, “Habima,” included activities for children, dance and musical performances, and speeches from local Jaffa activists.
