Five schools in Gaza two Catholic and three Christian face closure if the Hamas government follows through on an order forbidding co-educational institutions, according to the director general of Latin Patriarchate Schools in Palestine and Israel.
Fr Faysal Hijazin said: This will be a big problem. We hope they will not go through with it, but if they do, we will be in big trouble. We dont have the space and we dont have the money to divide our schools.
In addition to finding additional space, he said, the schools face having to hire more teachers. Men and women teachers would not be allowed to teach classes of the opposite sex older than 10 under Islamic law.

They don’t go directly against the Christians there... but it does look like they get insidious. In a way, like in the USA.
That seems a very odd way to put it.
One solution, perhap? The schools can just combine their student bodies, then split into an all boys school and an all girls school. Sp;it the teachers up by sex too.
two Catholic and three Christian
2 + 3 = 5 Christian schools
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
