  1. So what is the solution? More institutes? Establishment of more universities? Spend more money (that the state does not have) on higher education? Is there a solution?

  2. "The University of Haifa continues to grow and take in new faculty members." It is very difficult to be accepted as a faculty member at Haifa University and also to be accepted as a teacher from abroad (which is really not a glamorous position...). It is much easier to get accepted to a good university in the USA than to be accepted as a lecturer from abroad at the University of Haifa.
    And it is an engine for brain drain. It is true that there are limited budgets for higher education and the crisis has not yet been resolved, but in the long term, unfortunately, the policy of higher education encourages brain drain.
