Education Minister Naftali Bennett approved a new program of cultural events for schoolchildren, which would also extend the settlements into the periphery and will cover 800 thousands of Israeli children.
In the past budget «basket of culture» for schoolchildren was 16 million NIS, covering 500 thousand students. Under the new programme, the budget will be increased to 22 million, and cultural activities for schoolchildren will be able to visit 800 thousand children.
If earlier cultural activities were conducted for 100 students of all settlements, this list will be expanded and it will include the settlements on the periphery, which has not previously been spread «basket of culture». It is, for example, such cities as Sderot, Netivot and Ofakim. Just the list of settlements will be increased to 170.
The budget allocation will be differential in nature, depending on the number of pupils and the development index of the settlement.
The press service of the Ministry of education reports that the Ministry of education in Israel for the first time will create a database of all repertoire theater in Israel, from which the school Board will choose a presentation for their students. Note that only 30% of views must be approved by the repertory Committee.
The new database will include two lists — a General list of ideas and narrow the list of views, the Commission recommended repertoire.
