Education Minister Yifat Shasha-Biton is calling on Prime Minister Yair Lapid to hold an emergency meeting on the education crisis, with teachers and the Treasury failing to reach an agreement on improving the formers’ conditions and the start of the school year at stake.

“Despite my efforts in recent months, I have repeatedly found that Finance Ministry officials are uninterested in reaching a real solution,” she says. “Again and again, I see that the Finance Ministry is entirely indifferent to the danger that the school year will not open.”

Treasury officials and teacher representatives met earlier today for their latest meeting but failed to reach an agreement.
