A short documentary produced by the Israel Film Service for the Ministry of Education, Culture, and Sports.
What kind of education should be provided to children growing up in the 21st century? By the late ’90s, around 80 experimental schools in Israel are implementing innovative teaching methods to address this question. For instance, at the religious state school Hoshaya, history lessons are conducted at archaeological sites instead of in classrooms; in the Manshiya Zabda School, healthy students study alongside intellectually challenged students; and at the democratic school in Hadera, students are allowed to vote on the institution’s budget.
This short film captures the perspectives of students, parents, teachers, and principals from these experimental schools. Among the participants are Ganit Weinstein, Shimon Adler, Yaniv Greidi, Chen Bram, Shmulik Lerner, Roni Erez, David Dolan, Idit Eisen, Rani Abramovich, Zvika Zamora, Shaul Senanss, Anat Pinto, Yaron Hamel, Udi Davidson, Esther Ze’evi, Tali Fried, Zmira Frankel, Elaham Kasabari, Dad Attallah, Dikla Oren, Rachel Kedar, Limor Amar, and Ricky Gutlieb.
