Integration of Arab Teachers

Integration of Arab Teachers

ANU has partnered with the Merchavim Institute and the Ministry of Education to promote the increased integration of Arab math, science and English teachers in Jewish classrooms. The program provides schools with excellent candidates, a diverse teaching staff that educates for the recognition of the other, high satisfaction of schools participating in the program, and low dropout rates of Arab teachers compared to the general population of new educators in Israel. Since the campaign’s launch, hundreds of excellent applicants – all of whom go through an interview and a screening process – have been integrated into Israeli schools. Teachers and principals receive close guidance both from the Merchavim Institute and the Ministry of Education. In previous years, the Ministry of Education has also budgeted extra hours for schools that participate in the program.  In 2017, ANU’s campaign helped quadruple the number of Arab teachers in Israeli schools. The campaign was relaunched in 2019, and within the first two weeks, the campaign reached more than 30,000 online users and generated 50 leads.

The Ministry of Education and Merchavim Institute – which is an Israeli non-profit organization that works with young people of different backgrounds to learn about each other and develop shared civic consciousness to promote equality in and outside the classroom – partnered with ANU.
