Teachers hold one-hour strike to protest high school violence

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.
