The Palestinian narrative of the Arab-Israeli conflict has been included in some “Ethnic Studies” courses in K12 public schools in the US, while omitting the Jewish perspective. Teachers are supposed to provide a balanced approach to their students, let the two sides of a conflict present their case, analyze a subject from multiple points of view and let their students think and come to their own conclusions. Without this balanced approach, education is degraded into indoctrination.
The missing Jewish perspective is presented in my new book, titled “Ethnic Studies in K12 schools: The Jewish module”. The presentation of the material is didactic and fitted to 9th graders.
Talk to teachers and urge them to include the Jewish narrative side-by-side with the Palestinian narrative.
