Council for Higher Education: Political dept. at Beersheba to remain open
The Politics and Government Department at Ben Gurion Univeristy will remain open, based on a decision by a committee of the Council for Higher Education, reversing its initial decision to close it down.


Last year, the council decided the department was politically biased, suffered from a lack of academic staff, research, and quality of education. The committee demanded the university correct the deficiencies while threatening to close the department, but on Tuesday reversed its decision. (Shahar Chai)
