Gaza onslaught blocks exams, crushes Palestinian students' dreams

Teenagers across the Gaza Strip should have been taking their final exams this month, a last hurdle before university and lifelong dreams, but the Israeli onslaught on the Palestinian territory has crushed those hopes. 

According to the Education Ministry in Gaza, 85 percent of educational facilities across the territory are out of service because of the war. The Education Cluster, a UN-backed organisation, estimated in a report this month that more than 75 percent of Gaza's schools would need full reconstruction or major rehabilitation to reopen. Many have been turned into shelters for Gaza's displaced people and others have been damaged in bombardment.
