Ketzaleh: Call Parents, Save Lives


Following the tragic death of a four-year-old boy, MK Yaakov “Ketzaleh” Katz (National Union) sent a letter to Education Minister Gidon Saar calling on him to intervene. Teachers and daycare employees could save the lives of children accidently left in cars, he said.

Katz asked Saar to instruct teachers to call parents immediately if their child did not arrive at school. Mandatory calls could reveal cases in which young children were forgotten in cars before it is too late, he said.
