Controversial Education Official’s Firing Revoked

A court has cancelled the Education Ministry’s decision to dismiss Adar Cohen, the superintendent of civics education. Instead, Cohen will get another hearing within the ministry.

The decision to dismiss Cohen was apparently influenced by a report accusing him of promoting a leftist agenda. Cohen has said that he was targeted in a “smear campaign” by “hallucinatory and militant factors.”
