Finance Minister Avraham Hirchson decided on Sunday afternoon to allot an extra NIS 140 million to academic institutions as the new school year opens. In an emergency meeting between Hirchson, Education Minister Yuli Tamir, and university heads, the decision was made to set up a team headed by former minister Avraham Shohat, which would develop a comprehensive draft for reforms in the higher education system. The draft would include, among other things, a change in tuition, as well as a differential salary for lecturers.
