Education Minister Yuli Tamir gave a lesson in game show excellence to 100 school children from around the country Monday night, competing against the students in a special installment of TV trivia contest 1 vs. 100. Filmed just before the start of summer vacation, the episode featured the education minister holding her own against her charges, successfully answering questions about history, religion and geometry. ("Q: In what four-sided figure are only two of the sides parallel? A: A trapezoid.") Tamir, who holds two degrees from Hebrew University and a Ph.D. from Oxford, revealed herself to be somewhat less familiar with schoolyard culture, asking for help on a question about a popular instant messaging program. "I came to educate, and I learned," the minister told Avri Gilad, the host of the show. Tamir, who earned NIS 132,000 during her appearance, will donate her winnings to summer camps and teaching programs in communities bordering Gaza.
