Following recent complaints from working parents asking Education Minister Shai Piron to cancel the vacation days between Yom Kippur and Sukkot, the minister pledge on his Facebook page on Wednesday  to “make changes on the subject.”

“You are right,” he wrote to parents, “We just got back to school and already have a vacation. We have to adjust the number of vacation days to the days of employment, but it takes time.”

Piron explained that a solution to the issue needs to come from understanding and agreements with the teachers, whose rights should not be compromised by such changes.

“This is not only a minister’s decision,” he added, “This is a negotiation with a large number of participating factors”
