The Forum of Regional Parents’ Unions has been rolling out a wave of disruptions in school schedules across the country, fighting the overcrowding of classrooms.
The strikes, known as “the sardine protest,” shut down the first hour of studies in elementary schools in the center region and in all Education Ministry institutions in Dimona on Wednesday.
Select schools in Lehavim, Arad, Pardess Hanna, Karkur, Shimshit, and Afula remained empty for the first two periods Thursday morning and schools in Kfar Tavor, Gadera, Karmiel, Tirat Hacarmel, Petah Tikva, Kiryat Ono, Ganei Tikva, and Brenner Regional Council are set to strike for part or all of the day on Friday.
