BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – The Palestinian Authority’s ministry of education is considering heading early to the winter holiday before final exams, a ministry official said.

Undersecretary Muhammad Abu Zeid told Ma’an that “the ministry is following up with the teachers’ strike hour by hour, and is studying a suggestion to go early to the winter holiday in an attempt to save the semester.”

According to Abu Zeid, it was suggested that the winter holiday start Sunday, and students would have to sit for final exams at the beginning of the second semester.

The suggestion came as an attempt to cope with the ongoing teachers’ protests as the general union of teachers announced Tuesday that teachers and all employees at the ministry’s offices across the West Bank would go on strike Wednesday and Thursday protesting unpaid wages.
