How Israeli preschoolers learn to read and write
By Haim Katz-Sargon article Children who attend preschool in Israel are taught to read, write and understand Hebrew and the alphabet.
The preschool program in the country is based on the teaching model adopted by Israel’s state-run institutions, and the curriculum has been expanded and expanded to include languages other than Hebrew.
The program has received support from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a powerful lobbying group that has backed U.S. President Donald Trump’s policy of a two-state solution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.
The United States, Israel and many European countries have long supported the two-State solution, which is based in the 1967 Six-Day War and calls for a Palestinian state in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.AIPac’s policy on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been criticized by some of Israel’s liberal and secular elements.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has made no secret of his support for a two state solution, has frequently attacked AIPAC, saying that it “supports an apartheid state that oppresses the Jewish people” and is “the main obstacle” to achieving a two State solution.
In an interview with CNN on Monday, Israeli education minister Naftali Bennett said he has seen positive results, citing an example of an Israeli child who had a second language, but who was able to “learn the alphabet and the Hebrew alphabet” in just one year.
“It was a very fast turnaround,” he said.
The curriculum also includes lessons on geography, mathematics and reading.
A number of experts have voiced concern that the curriculum may have been written for the convenience of parents and children rather than children with disabilities.
“The curriculum for the preschool is designed for the sole purpose of giving the impression that it is a state-approved curriculum, which it is not,” Dr. Uri Baruch, a pediatrician who is the director of the program, told the AP.
“There is no consideration of the need to meet the needs of children with different kinds of disabilities, like autism, ADHD or other disabilities.”
The curriculum is based upon the Hebrew curriculum, but it includes English lessons, Hebrew reading and writing, Hebrew art, geography and math.
The curriculum also features a series of activities that have been taught in Hebrew and that are similar to those in kindergarten.
While the preschool curriculum has received praise from some liberal groups, including AIPac, it has been heavily criticized by Jewish and Arab groups.

The prime minister has promised to continue the two state system, and is seen as a key backer of Trump’s plan for a one-state settlement, known as the White House plan.

“The Israeli government’s aim is to create an Israel that is exclusively Jewish.
It does not recognize any other nation.
We are talking to the state-controlled schools in the state and not to the secular schools in secular schools, and they do not have any rights.”
The Hebrew-language curriculum is meant to be accessible to children who have disabilities.
“If we were talking about a curriculum for children with severe disabilities, we would not be teaching them Hebrew,” Stern said.
“We are only teaching Hebrew to children with hearing problems and those who are very visually impaired.”
According to the Hebrew-only curriculum, some of the materials are translated from Hebrew.
“There are two versions of the curriculum.
One is a secular version, the other is a Jewish version, so the curriculum is a mixture of both,” Baruch said.
Bennett’s comments, while promising positive results for the program and praising its staff, came as no surprise to the organization’s head, Uri Barush.
“Our goal is to keep the kids healthy,” he told the Associated Press on Monday.
“That means, as long as they are learning Hebrew, we need to support them with Hebrew.
The aim of the Hebrew program is to develop the children’s abilities and skills to be able to write, read and understand the Bible.”
Baruch told the Jerusalem Post that the preschool program is funded with a $5.2 million grant from the AIPCA and that the program has raised about $200 million in donations.
“We need to work to expand the preschool to the more diverse communities in Israel, including some of our children’s religious and ethnic communities,” he added.
“I think we have done a lot to help these communities.
I am happy that the public has embraced the preschool, and I am sure they will continue to.”
The program was established in 2005, and was launched by the then-prime minister Ehud Barak in the wake of the 2014 Likud-led Knessets election. Bar
