Speaker Mitzna said that the numbers published today reflect what was already known, namely that the gaps between the students found at the extremes of the education system are growing. ”This is a window into a sad situation that we must work to change as soon as possible. As someone who has worked extensively in education in the periphery while I was the speaker of the Appointed Committee of Yeruham, I am aware of the importance of strengthening the public educational system. In order to do so, I submitted the State Responsibility to the Public Bill (initiated by the ”Education is Everything” Organization, run by Dov Lautman and Rabbi Shai Piron) and it is my intention to continue to work on the matter until we receive the ideal results that will shrink the gaps.”
