UIN 8642, tabled on 5 September 2017

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, pursuant to the Memorandum of Understanding between the Palestinian Authority and her Department, signed in 2014, what assessment her Department has made to the findings and recommendations of the IMPACT-se report on the Palestinian Elementary School Curriculum 2016-17, published in April 2017.

HMG was very concerned at some of the findings of the IMPACT-SE report and met with IMPACT-SE to discuss them. Our assessment is that IMPACT-SE report was not objective in its findings. We work closely with the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Education on quality of education issues.
