TEPP SPEAKS OUT IN THE NAME OF THE CHILDREN
01 Aug 2006
TEPP is a network of educators, teacher trainers and materials-writers in the field of Teaching English as an Additional Language who have worked in Palestine, Lebanon or neighbouring countries. We wish as concerned teachers to express our outrage at the recent killing and destruction of infrastructure in Gaza and Lebanon.
As English teachers, teacher trainers and materials-writers who have worked in Palestine, Lebanon or neighbouring countries, we want to express our outrage at the recent killing and destruction of infrastructure in Gaza and Lebanon.

For years we have worked with our Palestinian colleagues - in often unbearable conditions - to educate their students to be responsible, rounded members of society. These patient attempts have been smashed by the indiscriminate killing of hundreds of Palestinian children and their parents over the past weeks, culminating in the massacre of 37 children in Qana in southern Lebanon July 30. Those who survive will only learn one thing: how to hate.
