Teacher’s Union chief Ran Erez pens a letter to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, demanding that middle and high school studies be moved online, charging that the government has lost control of the education system.

While acknowledging the disadvantages of studies via Zoom, Erez warns against what he terms the current “anarchy and pandemonium” and says remote studies would be the “lesser evil.”

“You tasked school managers with making decisions and acting as they please,” he says. “This will cause the entire system to collapse, or worse, explode.”

“Mr. prime minister, you are responsible. We can’t keep operating the secondary school system without test kits and while forcing teachers to work like in a Russian roulette [game].”
