Minister of Education to Meet with Southern Mayors Today


Minister of Education Shai Piron is set to meet this morning (Monday) with the municipal leaders of Israel's southern communities to discuss the opening of the new school year while the south is in the shadow of constant rocket attacks. The Ministry wants to open the school year on time, as scheduled, but the communities' mayors are claiming that it is irresponsible to start school with the present security situation.

Piron is expected to tell them that the Ministry has set the southern district schools to open on schedule, and according to the parameters set by the Home Front Command.
