President Shimon Peres has come out sharply against flaws in the education system. Delivering the opening address at the Holon Education Conference on Wednesday, Peres pointed to increasing incidents of violence and racism as proof of failure by educators to convey the most important human values in the classroom.

Profoundly disturbed by the gang beating last week of 17 year old Jamal Julani who was almost killed in the attack, Peres saw this raw display of racism as a national failure .
