Tel Aviv Municipality says it will fund any education program scrapped by Avi Maoz

A senior official at the Tel Aviv Municipality says the city will fund any educational activities and programs that get canceled by the presumed incoming government.

The development comes a day after it was published that ultra-conservative anti-LGBT extremist Avi Maoz will get control of an Education Ministry unit that decides on external education programs.

The head of the Tel Aviv city hall’s Education department, Shirley Rimon Bracha, says in a letter to school principals in the predominantly liberal city that Maoz’s expected appointment “is a management drama that could become a moral drama as well.

“I assume we all fear extremist, one-sided political intervention in the school material,” she writes.
