Quotation from Commission britannique Peel “The teaching is inspired by a purely Jewish rather than Palestinian objective” — 1937
In its report, it states the following about Jewish education in the Yishuv.
- Peel, William (1867-1937) ( Commission) ( 1 quotation )
" The idea that they are to share their life in any way with the Arabs, that they are growing up to be fellow-citizens with Arabs in a common Palestinian State, is only recognized in the teaching of a little Arabic in the secondary schools; and that provision, excellent in itself, is wholly insufficient as long as the rest of the teaching is inspired by a purely Jewish rather than Palestinian objective. So far, in fact, from facilitating a better understanding between .the races, the Jewish educational system is making it more and more difficult as, year by year, its production of eager Jewish nationalists mounts up.
