The study used the qualitative curriculum (case study) to understand educational initiatives in schools, where the qualitative data were collected through (4) in-depth interviews with secondary-level teachers who carried out educational initiatives in their schools in the (West Gaza-East Gaza-Northern Gaza (. Those who were chosen by the purposeful inspection method. The results of the study showed that the implementation of educational initiatives depended on advance planning, identification of the beneficiary group and specific procedures for the initiative, and the availability of dissemination mechanisms for the initiative, and that there were points of support for educational initiatives that came from the personal qualities of the initiators, the family, the school administration and the Ministry of Education and its departments. The challenges to implementing educational initiatives are administrative, material, logistical, student and colleague challenges, and community challenges.
The study recommended that schools should be provided with manuals and models for successful initiatives in Arab and foreign countries. Initiatives are being educated as an independent theme in education and training programs for managers and teachers.
