Palestinian Autonomous Territories
Approximately 75% of schools are under Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MOEHE) control, with the rest being split between private and UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) management. Because UN schools only cover until grade 9, all students at these schools must complete the compulsory cycle in government schools. There are slight differences in the educational systems of Gaza and the West Bank. Gaza pursues an Egyptian-style curriculum while the West Bank is closer to a Jordanian curriculum. (UNESCO IBE, World Data on Education. 7th Edition, 2010-2011. Revised 8/2011).
