Issam Umar, Chair of the Parents’ Committee for the Arab sector said that 80 percent of Arab schools do not have bomb shelters. “The schools that do have shelters can hold 30 students, but all the rest will be left outside the shelter in times of danger. I am sad to say that most of the shelters are used for storage or as special education classes. We have demanded that special emergency plans be put in place for dangers such as earthquakes or wars, but in my opinion, our communications are refused because we are Arabs. Protecting our students is not a priority,” added Umar.
