Names of schools in the PA
The Palestinian Authority transmits ideological messages that appear in its schoolbooks through the names it gives to its schools. The schoolbooks define Palestinian terror against Israel since Israel's founding in 1948 as: "resistance … acts of most glorious heroism."  [Arabic Language, Analysis, Literature and Commentary, Grade 12, p. 105]
In the spirit of glorifying terror, numerous schools are named after terrorist murderers.

Israeli cities are presented in Palestinian schoolbooks as if they are Palestinian cities. In this spirit, schools are given name of the cities of Israel. See below.

The most common school name PMW has found is the name Al Khansa – with at least 8 schools given her name. Al Khansa is the honored mother of Islamic tradition because she expressed joy over the Shahada (Martyrdom) deaths of her four children.
A PA schoolbook for Grade 8, explains her importance this way: 
 
“Al-Khansa witnessed the Battle of Al-Qadisiyah with her four sons. She urged them to fight… They fought until all of them fell as Shahids. When the news reached her she said, ‘Praise be to Allah who has honored me by their Shahada.’” 
[Reading and Texts Part II, Grade 8, p. 13]

Al-Khansa’s celebration of her four sons' deaths makes her a perfect role model for Palestinian girls, as Palestinian society has chosen to teach that death is a greater value than life.
One example of this teaching is in Palestinian Authority schoolbook for 13 year-olds that teach children: 
 
 “Your enemies seek life while you seek death.” 
[Reading and Texts Part II, Grade 8, p. 16]

Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, killing 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.

Official PA TV program The Root of the Story on the Dalal Mughrabi School in Gaza:
PA TV host: “Today we are in the Dalal Mughrabi School [in Gaza], to get to know the Palestinian Martyr and fighter [Dalal Mughrabi]...”
Student 1: “Dalal Mughrabi is a great leader, who raised more and more and worked for the Palestinian cause to protect the pure land of the homeland, by defending Jerusalem to liberate it. This fighter may have died and her soul may have ascended to Heaven, but still our mothers give birth to thousands like Dalal, and she still walks among us. Dalal Mughrabi has given us a lot, and I personally am proud to attend the Dalal Mughrabi School, which bears this pioneering name.”
Student 2: "My life's ambition is to reach the level that the Martyr fighter Dalal Mughrabi reached..."
Teacher at the school: “Dalal Mughrabi is a fighter who carried out Jihad and struggle from the beginning of her life. She was one of the brave female fighters who carried out Martyrdom-seeking operations (i.e., terror attacks). We in the Ministry of Education had the honor of naming our school after the Martyr Dalal Mughrabi, so that her eternal memory will stay for a long time.”
