General Union of Palestinian Teachers (GUPT)

GENERAL UNION OF PALESTINIAN TEACHERS (GUPT)

The quasi-official Palestinian teachers' union, headquartered in Ramallah. Like the other Palestinian General Unions, it is part of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and is represented on the PLO's governing body, the Palestine National Council. Like all such officially sponsored civic organizations, its primary focus is the Palestinian national struggle. It is affiliated with the international organization Education International in Brussels and maintains relations with teachers' unions around the world. The GUPT works with refugees in camps in and out of Palestine. It is the largest Palestinian teachers' organization, but independent teachers' unions not under control of the Palestine Authority (PA) do exist, and their relationship with the PA has been extremely contentious.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
