Bennett on billion shekel education cut: Not on my watch

Education Minister Naftali Bennett emphatically stated on Monday that the NIS 720m cut to education and the NIS 263m cut to higher education in the proposed budget will not happen.

“There will not be a billion shekel cut to education on my watch,” Bennett said in his statement.

“This kind of cut is destructive and will cause us not to be able to strengthen the periphery, we won’t reduce gaps in education, there won’t be second assistants in preschools, we won’t reverse the downward trend in mathematics, we won’t be able to strengthen educating values, and we won’t change the violent discourse in Israeli society,” Bennett warned.
