Israel and Tunisia rank highest in the Middle East in education for tolerance and peace, according to a study released on Tuesday.

Research by the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (IMPACT-SE) showed that Tunisia is no less tolerant than Israel, after educational reforms, while the Egyptian school system does not teach democratic values.

The researchers posit that their findings in Egypt "lower the chances for the emergence of a liberal democratic government."
