The lessons Israeli students can learn from Begin and Ben-Gurion
The Ministry of Education has dedicated this academic year to studying the leadership of two former prime ministers. Indeed, David Ben-Gurion and Menachem Begin have much to teach.
A few weeks ago, Education Minister Gideon Sa’ar announced that the national curriculum for the 2012-2013 academic school-year would focus on former prime ministers David Ben-Gurion and Menachem Begin. The decision to pair them together was supposedly coincidental: Next year will be both the 100th anniversary of Begin’s birth and the 40th anniversary of Ben-Gurion’s death.
