More funding towards education in the periphery? Yes please, but don’t stop there

Allocating more funding to elementary schools in Israel’s periphery is an important first step but it can’t end there, argues education activist Dalia Perez in this 3-minute read from the Jerusalem Post. Students in Israel’s periphery lag far behind their counterparts in the central regions—public expenditure on education in the strong cluster is some 20 times higher than in the weakest! “In order to ensure that the differential budgeting is effective, much more substantial resources must be channeled to offering a comprehensive supportive framework for students in the periphery,” Perez writes.
