Britain's Educational Encounter with Palestinian Jewry

By Rachel Alboim-Dror

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), December 1995

This article, originally published in the Hebrew in Cathedra, presents the tension between the colonial educational goals of the British Empire in Palestine and those of the Zionist yishuv (settlement). The author, Professor Emeritus in the School of Education at the Hebrew University, shows that the British educational policy in Palestine differed substantially from that in the rest of the Empire's colonies. These are related to unique motives the British elite had for the future of the Jews in Israel, the Zionist nationalistic ideals, and the tension between the Arab and Jewish populations.
