A Jerusalem resident who signed up to the education Hackiton brought a troubling story on the behaviour bus drivers exhibit towards the children with special needs. A Jerusalem correspondent from Galei Tzahal reported the case in the morning show newscast
Last month The Movement of Public Journalism and the Journalists Club in Jerusalem launched a series of Hackitons, which have the support of the Jerusalem Model of The Lictag Foundation and were prepared as part of the "Barutina" events of the youth authority of the Jerusalem municipality. The purpose of the Hackitons is to allow the residents of the city to meet with journalists and create journalistic stories together with them that will bring social issues in Jerusalem to the public agenda and publish them to important media platforms.
Following the voices that called for the first Hackiton, which focused on education, a Jerusalem resident signed up to the process and told a troubling story about problematic behaviour, as she described it, that the drivers of a transportation company exhibit towards children with special needs. The coordinator of the Hackitons, the journalist from Jerusalem Yossi Saidov, spoke with the resident, processed the story with her and connected her with one of the journalists who took upon herself to the Hackiton project, Ashhal Peled, the Jounalist of Gali Tzahal in Jerusalem.
Peled looked into the research, crossrefrenced the information and asked for the comment of the transportation company is the Jerusalem Municipality. Her report was aired today on the show “Good Morning Israel”, the morning show of Galei Tzahal.
