Research has shown that the TEC4Schools program yields outstanding results and succeeds in significantly reducing prejudices among participants and creating positive attitudes towards different cultures.


The program has received recognition in international conferences and its academic papers are regularly published and cited in both scholarly and popular journals.


The program also receives support, funding, and encouragement from the Israeli Ministry of Education to further implement the model within the three cultural sectors of the educational system in Israel: secular Jewish, religious Jewish, and Arabic.
