The Ministry of Education has cut most of the budget for enhanced civics study. The budget that was thus freed up will be transferred for the instruction of Jewish subjects, under directive from Zvi Zameret, chair of the Pedagogical Council of the Ministry of Education. The Ministry of Education refused to give exact details about the scope of the cutback, but a Haaretz investigation shows that only one third of approximately 60 schools that had met the criteria for that support will indeed receive it.

The Ministry of Education has instructed that the primary civics textbook used in Israel be rewritten. According to Ministry sources Zvi Zameret, Chair of the Pedagogic Council for the Ministry, said that the book “deals too much with criticism of the state,” and “gives the feelign that everything is bad with the Arabs”. Zameret was involved in writing the Institute for Zionist Strategy report that criticized civics instruction in Israel.
