The Ministry of Education & Higher Education is responsible for overseeing and developing both of the Palestinian general and higher education sectors, and seeks to provide enrollment opportunities for all those who are of school age, as well as improving teaching and learning quality and diversity, in line with the contemporary trends in the world. Moreover, the MoEHE is working hard on developing human resources in the education sector in order to create well-qualified Palestinian citizens, capable of performing duties efficiently and effectively.

Since taking over the education sector, the MoEHE has initiated many development strategies in collaboration with national and international partners and exerted great efforts to advance and enhance the educational process. Despite the difficult political situation and lack of regional support, the MoEHE has shouldered a great burden by inheriting a heavy legacy with a semi-collapsed educational structure left over by the Israeli government that was responsible for Palestinian education before 1994. Nevertheless, the Ministry took upon itself to succeed, and started a wide - sector reform plan to reshape the whole educational system, and put it in the right track. .
