The Springboard to Social Mobility plan was initiated in order to further the efforts of the Rashi Foundation to drive social mobility and equal opportunity in Israel by inspiring policy change.
The first stage in this campaign focuses on early childhood, and particularly on expansion of the State's responsibility for education and care in the crucial first years of life.
We believe that closing social gaps should start with a national policy that provides all Israeli children with access to excellent, state-supervised and subsidized education from birth.
Attn: the next Minister of Education
The elections are (hopefully) behind us, and it is time to focus on the urgent tasks facing the new goverment, among them the need for major reforms in the Israeli public education system.
What pressing issues will the next minister of education - no matter who he or she is - find on his desk?
