Highlighting a politically charged learning environment in Israel, this series navigates the complex world of facts, opinions, and beliefs, and how these conversations permeate all aspects of our lives, including our children’s education. We’ll watch the first two episodes in a six-part series and then discuss how the story relates to local issues here in the U.S.
