The Industry, Trade and Labor Ministry objected Thursday to a planned NIS 2,000 tuition increase at technological colleges. The Forum of Technological Colleges announced earlier this week that it would raise tuition for the upcoming academic year, after their demand for an emergency budget increase of NIS 40 million was rejected.

Industry, Trade and Labor Minister Shalom Simhon said Thursday that the demand for a budget increase is justified and promised to deal with the issue himself.

"In light of the fact that budgetary discussions on the issue are being held, I see the unilateral act of the Forum of Technological Colleges, which is done at the expense of the students, very gravely," Simhon said.
