Contents Notes
Does the solution to the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians rest in the classroom rather than in the angry, fearful streets of the region? Lessons in Fear looks at Israeli and Palestinian kids on the front lines of education, exploring the education system in both societies from ground up. In a media world obsessed with conflict, Lessons in Fear takes humanized, behind-the-scenes look at how ordinary kids are educated in one of the world's trouble spots. In the war-torn areas where civility and basic rights have been forgotten, the education of young minds is what gets affected the most. The film looks at the struggle to make education a positive force in Israel and the Palestinian territories.
