Education Ministry spending billions, but not implementing reforms properly

"What we can prevent at the outset, or fix relatively easily at a young age, turns into an impossible task later on," State Comptroller Joseph Shapira writes, quoting the 2005 Dovrat report. He is referring to the importance of good education for the state’s youngest citizens in his annual report presented to the speaker of the Knesset, Yuli Edelstein Tuesday afternoon.

The New Horizons reform, costing the government NIS 960 million a year, is meant to ensure a high standard of education and regulation in the kindergarten system, and yet despite the large investment, the Comptroller report has found that large parts of the reform have not been implemented.
