I am pleased to read that Uri Dromi supports an increase in funding for the 20 percent of Israel’s population that consists of Arab citizens (Israel moves to help its Arab citizens, Jan. 14).
As reported by Adalah, a human rights organization, Israel has been spending three times more on the education of each of its Jewish children than on that of each of its Arab children. If Israel corrected this situation, extending educational equality to all citizens, its claim to be a democracy would gain credibility.
