Education Minister frees the sardines, announces maximum class size of 34

After months of promising to deal with overcrowding in elementary school classrooms in the face of protests, strikes and threats to delay the opening of the school year, the “Small Class Reform” was announced by Education Minister Naftali Bennett at a press conference on Thursday morning.

“Today the sardines are freed from their tin can,” announced Bennett, adding that “we promised to take care of it, and we took care of it.”

After a long night of budget discussions, Bennett boasted about the NIS 50 billion education budget, saying it is the largest such allotment in the history of the state.
