scholasticide
 n.— «Now in Gaza…we see the policy more clearly than ever—this “scholasticide.” The Israelis know nothing about who we really are, while we study and study them. But deep down they know how important education is to the Palestinian tradition and the Palestinian revolution. They cannot abide it and have to destroy it.» —“In Gaza, the schools are dying too” by Ameera Ahmad, Ed Vulliamy Guardian (United Kingdom) Jan. 10, 2009. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
