Arabs make up only 2.7% of academic teaching staff in Israel

Arabs make up a mere 2.7 percent of the academic teaching staff in Israel, according to figures from the Council for Higher Education. The Council’s figures, which will be presented Monday to a commission of inquiry on absorption of Arabs into the Civil Service, show that just 280 Arab lecturers are currently employed in the country.

The statistics present a dismal picture of the state of Arab employment in Israeli universities and colleges.

The commission of inquiry, headed by United Arab List-Ta’al chairman MK Ahmed Tibi, will also be presented data showing not a single Arab employee in a senior management position at any of the state-budgeted colleges. Arabs make up just 1.7 percent of the higher education system’s administrative staff, the Council’s figures reveal.
