ISRAEL

Needless Anxiety
At Arab-Israeli School

NECHEMIA MEYERS

Special to The Jewish News

R

ehovot — It was with
a certain sense of
anxiety that I set out
for a visit to the Galilee Arab
village of Kefar Manda. After
all, scarcely a day has gone by
of late without some nasty in-
cident in the predominantly
Arab areas of Israel. Rocks
and even Molotov cocktails
have been thrown at passing
cars, forests set on fire,
threats made against Arabs
suspected of collaboration
with the authorities and even
attempts made to kill Jewish
consumers by inserting
slivers of glass into the figs
sold to them at roadside
stands.
My anxiety was completely
unwarranted. I was received
with the greatest warmth by
the teachers and pupils at the
Kefar Manda High School,
where I had gone to see how
a new mathematics cur-
riculum based on extensive
use of computers was being
introduced into one of Israel's
61 Arab-language high
schools.
Such institutions are
much like Hebrew-language
schools, though some dif-
ferences do exist. At Kefar
Manda, for example, the walls
are decorated with Moslem
motifs like Jerusalem's Mos-
que of Omar and some 10 per-
cent of the girl pupils are
covered from head to toe in

Khomeini-style robes rather
than the usual Israeli jeans
and blouses.

But the office of the prin-
cipal looks much like one in
a Tel Aviv school, featuring,
among other things, the
emblem of the state flanked
by photographs of the presi-
dent and the prime minister
(though the latter, in Kefar
Manda, apparently is still
Shimon Peres).

I was impressed with the
serious approach to
mathematics of both teachers
and students. This is true,in-
cidentally, in Arab high
schools generally, where, ac-
cording to a recent National
Bureau of Statistics report, 48
percent of the pupils take ad-
vanced math courses, as con-
trasted with 41 percent of the
pupils in Jewish schools.

Those figures are somewhat
misleading as they reflect a
50-50 mix of academic and
vocational high school
students where Jews are con-
cerned, and almost only
academic school students in
the case of Arabs, since few
vocational schools are
available for Arab youngsters.

According to a recent report
by Haifa University
sociologist Dr. Magid el Haj,
42 percent of the Arabs who
were graduated in recent
years from that institution
are either unemployed or
have blue collar jobs.
