Universities, Colleges, and students band together to fight budget cuts

The Committee of University Heads, Committee of College Heads, and the National Union of Israeli Students letters to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Education Minister Naftali Bennett, Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon, and MKs on Wednesday, calling on them to prevent the budget cuts to institutions of higher learning.

"We were shocked to hear the announcement of an expected NIS 263 million cut to the budget for institutions of higher learning in the upcoming budget," read the letter from the NUIS to the MKs.

"Even more outrageous is the fact that the decision did not result from current pressing matters to Israeli society, rather purely from coalition considerations and the scandalous decision by the Israeli government to approve lateral budget cuts of three percent in the state budget," the letter went on to accuse.
