The Israeli education system must implement year-round programs addressing coexistence and not only during times of stress, said MK Ya’acov Margi (Shas) on Monday.

He made these comments at a Knesset Education, Culture and Sports Committee meeting on how the education system is coping with the recent terror wave.

The committee heard from representatives of the Education Ministry and NGOs on the pedagogical programs being implemented in schools to promote coexistence and acceptance of the other.

There was a consensus among the representatives and the committee members that there is a greater need to develop and implement such programs yearround and not only discuss their importance during times of crisis, as is currently being done.

Joint List MKs also addressed the committee, citing a “one sided” Israeli education system that does not address the needs and fears of Arab students.

MK Yousef Jabareen (Joint List) said the Education Ministry “sees only the needs of the Jewish students,” while dismissing the effects of the recent tension on Arab students.
