Watch our CEO, Galit Kaspi Cohen, being interviewed on Channel 13’s News about her opinion on integrating art and history education better in the Israeli school curriculum.

She discusses why she believes high schools should not put the main focus only on Maths, Sciences, and the like. While those are important subjects that help students break through into the world of high-tech, there are so many other aspects of education that are missing.

Most of the students coming to ISEF from peripheral neighborhoods do not have access to extracurricular activities or cultural museums in their neighborhoods. Classes such as art and history enrich their values and ethics and are crucial in helping the youth start their adult lives as well-rounded intellectual individuals.
