A credible research analyst who goes by the pen name of Elder of Zion has written a thoughtful perspective about the UNRWA school system in Jordan, where he points out that there is no reason whatsoever for the UN and UNRWA’s donor countries to support a separate school system altogether
Nearly all Palestinian “refugees” in Jordan are citizens of Jordan who can. attend Jordanian state schools, whose curriculum UNRWA uses.
Already about one third of Palestinian “refugee” citizens of Jordan send their children to Jordanian public schools.
In the words of ELDER OF ZION, maintaining two parallel school systems is inefficient and wasteful. Jordan can take over the existing UNRWA school buildings and hire UNRWA teachers. The donors who fund UNRWA could divert some of their money for a few years to Jordan’s education ministry until the transition is complete.
