Israeli Education Minister Proposes a "New Code of Ethics" to Encourage Zionism
On Tuesday, during the meeting of the Knesset Education Committee, the Israeli Education Minister, Gideon Sa'ar, explained that the objective of the new code should be to end the present row over teaching Zionism. Professors think that the plan exceeds the limits of academic freedom.
Sa'ar declared that the new code should be introduced in the higher education system in order to encourage "Zionist views in academia". The code, he said, should include the following principles: course materials should reflect the range of views held by academics on the topic, and lecturers should not be discriminated on the basis of their political views.
