Ze’ev Hartman, Nazareth Illit city council member, attacked the Ministry of Education for its decision to implement integration between Jewish and Arab kindergardeners.  Hartman said that the residents of Nazareth Illit are familiar with the Arabs and that “there is estrangement because Arabs murder Jews.  There is estrangement because the Nazereth mosque’s Imam calls for the murder of Jews.”

A report published by the Knesset Research and Information Center indicates that in 60% of elementary schools, funds intended for assisting students who were born in other countries are used for other purposes. The data indicates that the funds were used for normal teaching and other things. The report also determined that the drop-out rate of immigrant students in the school system is almost double that of Israeli-born students, and their rate of their integration in alternative educational environments is low as well.
