This chapter discusses the practices of surveillance and control at the individual level which aimed to affect the ways through which Palestinians form their views and attitudes through formal education and informal learning. Educational institutions have been widely regarded in modern times as the appropriate settings through which certain ideas could be propagated and become hegemonic by acquiring a status akin to the laws of nature. Education for the Palestinians and its plausible impact generated various debates and gave rise to diverse opinions. Abba Hushi served as the chairman of Mapai's Arab department in the 1960s. He composed a comprehensive plan on 20 May 1960 to solve myriad aspects of the Palestinian minority's status in Israel, particularly in education. In 1958/1959, Palestinian students established their own society, the Arab Students Committee.
