Blue and White defends move to loosen school imitations during lockdown

Blue and White responds to harsh criticism leveled at it from the Likud party after its decision to reverse a government order, which Blue and White ministers had voted for, to prevent grades 5-10 from attending school during the lockdown.

“In all countries of the world, the education system also operates in a lockdown.,” the party says, without providing examples to back up that claim.

“Netanyahu, who has avoided dealing with hotspots and raising fines for narrow political reasons, continues to use the coronavirus for his political needs. We will not accept moral sermons from those who bring hundreds of thousands of families to poverty and have not transferred a budget just to escape the law and harm the justice system,” the party charges.
