Education Minister tries his hand at teaching math

Education Minister Naftali Bennett tried his hand at teaching a sixth grade math class at the Krol High School in Petah Tikva Thursday morning. This comes the week after his inaugural speech as incoming education minister, in which he warned of the "strategic danger" he sees in the decreasing number of high school students matriculating with five points in math, the highest math matriculation in the system.

"We must not allow the continued and drastic decrease in the number of students matriculating with five points in math. This isn’t a statistical number – these are the future developers we are losing, these are the next Iron Dome developers that will not exist, these are the future brains of Israel that simply won’t fulfill their potential in the world," Bennett said, speaking to the class of sixth grade math students.
