Israeli Schools to Make Classes on Climate Crisis Mandatory for All Ages

Starting next year, Israeli schools will be required to teach students from kindergarten on about the climate crisis, the education and environmental protection ministries announced Sunday.

The Education Ministry will send all school principles guidelines to that effect in the coming days, according to the announcement. The climate crisis has thus far not been part of the compulsory curriculum and was offered only as a possible elective, which most teachers chose not to teach.

The two ministries, at the initiative of Education Minister Yifat Shasha-Biton and Environmental Protection Minister Tamar Zandberg and their professional staff, now say that they will gradually integrate a climate program into the curriculum, for all levels, encompassing 30 hours a year, which is equivalent to one hour per week.
