I am a veteran educator in Israel and nonetheless am "floored" constantly by the Ministry of Education's so -called "educational" decisions. Israeli pupils, of all sectors, must learn about and discuss the issues at hand, even if our democracy is not as democratic as we'd like it to be. I'm not against Jewish studies, but the cut in hours/budget for civics, comes also at the expense of non-Jewish schools. Democracy?
