H.R. 3266 The Peace and Tolerance in Palestinian Education Act

(November 2, 2023)

The House of Representatives passed the Peace and Tolerance in Palestinian Education Act by voice vote. It requires the Department of State to report on the curriculum (including textbooks, leaflets, pamphlets, magazines, and other instructional materials) used in schools in areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority or located in Gaza and controlled by any other entity. Among other topics, the report must address (1) whether the materials used encourage violence or intolerance toward other nations or ethnic groups, (2) the steps the Palestinian Authority is taking to reform such materials, and (3) whether U.S. foreign assistance is used to fund the dissemination of the offending materials.
