Download PDF for this date

One percent of all school children in Israel have been identified as “gifted” and are enrolled in special classes to make the most of their talents, the Education Ministry reported Sunday.

The youngsters especially proficient in the sciences or arts were discovered as a result of tests administered by the Szold Institute, which the Education Ministry commissioned for the purpose.
