Israel's insane driver's ed system
If perhaps the driving and traffic statistics in Israel were sublime, we might congratulate ourselves for having perfected driving education. But drivers here have a pitifully poor performance record.
My fourth son just passed his driving test. Aside from the usual ecstasy of the new young driver (paralleled by fearful anxiety on the part of the parents), this means that the seemingly endless stream of funds for drivers' education - much greater than my experience growing up in the United States prepared me for - has finally ceased, at least until child number five comes of age.
