FM reiterates opposition to budget cuts for free education

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman reiterated Saturday night his opposition to budget cuts to fund free early childhood education.
During a meeting with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Lieberman reportedly repeated that he will vote against the prime minister's proposal when it is brought to a ministerial vote on Sunday.
Lieberman first expressed his view on Friday, speaking at at Israel Beiteinu headquarters in Jerusalem. He said that while he supports free education for children from age three, he believes that the policy should only apply to families in which both parents work and served in the army. He explained that people can in this way pay for the education via taxes and their service to the country.
