Teachers in junior high schools and high schools will strike for one hour at the beginning of Tuesday's school day. Children will begin to study at 9 a.m. The strike is a collective protest against violence directed at teachers. On Monday, a schoolmaster in a religious school in Kiryat Gat was allegedly attacked by the father of a girl who had been requested by the schoolmaster to change her skirt to a longer one, on the grounds of modesty. The father allegedly grabbed the woman and smashed her head against a wall three times before she managed to escape.
