MK Wilf: Bring Back School Nurses


Member of Knesset Einat Wilf (Ha'atzma'ut) called, Monday, for legislation to return nurses to public schools. Speaking at a Labor, Welfare and Health Committee hearing on extension of the Natalie company's contract for providing health services for students, Dr. Wilf called the removal of nurses for a private contractor "a disaster by any measure".

Saying there was no financial justification for the policy, she said another year should not pass without school nurses, even if legislation to achieve that aim meets with indignation from the Treasury.
