Renewed Calls to Invest in the Negev

Deputy Minister of Education MK Avi Wortzman called for investing in the Negev at the Negev Conference on Tuesday. "Local authorities in periphery areas should get more in their base education budget to create an investment," he stated. "I see the change that's happening in the Negev, but first of all, to reduce the real gaps [compared to richer areas] we must start with education," MK Wortzman said. "I intend to spend whatever available means to bring about a real change in the region, through schools, early childhood centers, and promoting other programs that will lead to a significant change in the coming years," he added.
