The Educational System of Israel.
Institute of International Studies (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
This document examines the educational system of Israel, including vocational, teacher, and higher education programs. The basic system involves a 1-year kindergarten program and 8 years of elementary education, which are free and compulsory. Secondary education, usually extending over a period of 4 years, is neither free nor compulsory. Changes in the traditional structural pattern of Israeli elementary-secondary education, which have recently been initiated and are gradually being implemented, are discussed. Higher education programs--varying in the number of years of study depending on the institution, the field of study, and the diploma or degree program undertaken--are financed through tuition fees, grants, and government subsidies. A selected glossary and reading list is included. (Author/JR)
