MK: Nat'l anthem is required at graduation ceremonies

Knesset Education, Culture and Sport Committee chair Alex Miller (Israel Beiteinu) said Sunday he plans on drafting a bill that would require institutions of higher education to require playing the national anthem at all graduation ceremonies.
The MK's plans come on the shadow of controversy created by Hebrew University's Social Work department, and University of Haifa's Law department, both of which failed to play the national anthem as graduates walked.
Miller said: "The fact that Israel invests so much of its budget in higher education and thousands of shekels in every student makes the decision to exclude the national anthem at graduation ceremonies even more boldly outrageous. He also slammed those with a political agenda or who may have removed the anthem for fears of its impact on a "certain segment of the population."
