Education Minister: Teachers Can't Be Sacked Over Ideological Views

The education minister weighs in on the case of the ORT high school teacher who was almost fired for expressing critical views of the IDF in class.

One cannot fire a teacher who disagrees with the prevailing ethos, though there’s no problem with reprimanding him, Education Minister Shay Piron said Wednesday in a clear reference to Adam Verete, the ORT network teacher who was threatened with dismissal, though the minister didn’t mention his name.
