150 teacher soldiers sent to Ashkelon

The Education Ministry dispatched 150 teacher soldiers to Ashkelon on Monday to assist at schools during emergencies. The deployment followed a request from the Home Front Command. The teachers will help kids get to shelters during rocket attacks and teach proper emergency procedures. They will also provide moral support. Thirty teacher soldiers have been operating in Sderot since last week.
