Her second book Back to Basics: How to Save Israeli Education (at no additional cost) offers a detailed and feasible policy proposal for improving Israel’s education system. Her third and recent book It’s NOT the Electoral System, Stupid demonstrates through comparative analysis why Israel’s electoral system is no worse than those of other democracies and therefore should not be changed.
