The Education Ministry has announced plans to invest NIS 15 million over the school year to increase the number of students visiting Jerusalem on school trips.
The plan “We’re Going Up to Jerusalem” (Na’aleh l’yerushalayim) was unveiled last week as part of Education Minister Gideon Sa’ar’s proposals for the school year.
The ministry said the increased investment has already more than doubled the number of students visiting Jerusalem – a total it expects will reach more than 500,000 pupils by the end of the school year.
The programs will be divided into three age-specific groups, and are part of the Israeli core curriculum’s emphasis on “awareness of the state of Israel, and love of the motherland.”
