It's about time!

Education Minister Shai Piron (Yesh Atid) appears likely to fire a high school civics teacher from the Haifa suburb of Kiryat Tivon for bringing his radical Leftist politics into the classroom.
The teacher, according to the student, tried to convince students to dodge the IDF draft. As a result, the Education Ministry is seeking to fire him.

The student wrote a letter on the matter to Education Minister Shai Piron. Piron called the teacher in for a meeting in the wake of the student's complaint.
The student wrote that she was very confused because of the teacher. “I am supposed to join the army in less than a year, and my teacher is telling me that the army is immoral, and that anyone who joins it is forced to do cruel things,” the letter said, Channel Two reported.
Speaking to Channel Two, the student said that the teacher's comments “made me very angry. I see this as anti-army incitement.”
In addition to railing against the army, the teacher, according to the student, told students that he was a radical leftist, “and according to him the state did not belong to the Jews at all but to the Arabs, and as fast as he was concerned, the Jews had no business being in Israel at all.”
The teacher, said the student, said that he had voted for Hadash, the Israel Communist Party.
Teachers on the state payroll are supposed to keep their politics out of the classroom. BWAHAHAHAAHA!
