According to a Yisrael HaYom report, 30% of avreichim granted a deferment from IDF service after declaring they are learning did not comply with conditions of the agreement.
According to information presented to the Knesset Foreign Affairs & Defense Committee by Ministry of Education Torani Department official Amos Tzeida, the annual budget for avreichim stands at NIS 135 million, but a random inspection has revealed 30% of the avreichim lied, and are not spending all their time learning as is required under the agreement.
He added there is no system in place to monitor 115,000 talmidim and avreichim who push off military service. There are recommendations to disqualify institutions in which avreichim are found to have attested to learning while in actuality, they are not present.
