Israel’s elementary school teachers are on the verge of striking. They teachers ended school early on Monday, May 30th, to protest their low wages and difficult working conditions. Israel’s education system is burdened with a growing student population but not enough teachers to accommodate them. Legally, 40 students can be in one class, which presents many challenges to both teachers and students. The growing teacher shortage in the country is only making matters worse. Please pray for wisdom for education officials as they approach the situation. Please also pray that conditions for teachers will improve drastically, and that they will be fairly compensated for their hard work. Lastly, please pray that Israel will avoid an all-out strike by its teachers, which could compromise next year’s school year as well.
