The discussion of education in Israel deals to a great extent with the question of educational standards.
This also became a national undertaking with the establishment of the Dovrat Commission. There is a feeling of a crisis following the poor attainments of Israeli students on the international scholastic tests, low achievement on Army tests, and growing educational gaps in achievement and in matriculation certification between social economic groups.
This article focuses on the most worrisome issues in education, their causes and recommendations regarding ways of thinking towards change and improvement of the educational system.
