The USA and Israel quit UNESCO. They pulled out on New Year's Eve. It is the second time the U.S. has pulled out. It quit in 1984 for seven years. The USA and Israel say UNESCO is against Israel. The USA said: "UNESCO is among the most corrupt and...biased UN agencies."

The USA co-founded UNESCO after World War II. It is famous for its World Heritage program. It improves education for girls, helps people understand the Holocaust, and defends the press. The U.S. will follow UNESCO as a non-member state. Israel said it would not be a member of UNESCO because it is against them.
