Politics and Policy-Making in Israel's Educational System
Author Text to Follow
This is the first comprehensive book in English to describe and
analyse the structure of Israel’s educational system from
a political and policy-making perspective. It has been written in
response to academicians’ demands for a clear understanding
of how education policy in Israel is shaped by the political agenda
and the fluid balance of power between vested political interests
in education policy.
The main actors in the formation of educational policy are described in detail: the roles of political parties, the teachers’ unions, parents’ unions, local authorities and the Ministry of Education and Culture are discussed.
By describing the link of politics to education in Israel in terms of current, western models it allows comparisons between different national systems, thereby highlighting the specific strains and problems that have to be overcome as a result of secular/religious dichotomies.
