today, as part of the social justice class that i'm taking at pardes, we visited the max rayne יד ביד - hand in hand jerusalem school. it's an intential bi-lingual, (hebrew and arabic) and bi-cultural (jewish and arabic/palestinian christian/muslim). there's over 600 students enrolled from grades k-10. all classes are team-taught in hebrew and arabic.

it's the equivalent of a public charter school in the states, funded like all schools by the israeli government (but also supplemented by the governments of germany, switzerland, and lichtenstein). watch the above video. it's a lot better than what's on cnn right now.
