Education Ministry instructs schools to discuss violent demonstrations

Michal Cohen, director-general of the Education Ministry, in a letter on Monday, directed educational institutions to discuss the violent events that have occurred over the past few days at demonstrations in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, with an emphasis on “the severe and destructive implications that these phenomena have on society and the state.”

The letter, which contained links to lesson plans for all grades, from kindergarten to high school, spoke about “deep revelations of racism, incitement and reckless violence,” as well as the obligation that rests on the shoulders of the ministry to mend “the unacceptable social ills and afflictions and to implant the sacred values of protection of human dignity and freedom, love for mankind and mutual responsibility.”
