Special Education Day to be Extended This Year


Education Minister Shai Piron decided, Monday, that the school day for special-education students will be longer in 5774 (2013-2014).

The extension will apply to about 1,620 with cerebral palsy and multiple serious physical disabilities, whose day will end at 15:30 instead of 14:30, as well as 2,633 with mild retardation, who will study until 14:30 instead of 13:30. The new hours will be the same, whether the special student is in a special school or goes to special education in a regular school.
