No school for 180 Sephardic girls

| |

The 2011-2012 school year will open in four months, but it seems racial discrimination is already raising its ugly head: Ynet has learned that nearly 200 haredi girls in Jerusalem have yet to be admitted into educational institutions in the city, although registration has already ended.

The students, most of them of Sephardic descent, make up 7% of the city’s ultra-Orthodox female students and are slated to begin studying in a seminary (high school for girls) next year.

Almost a year after the arrest of parents of Ashkenazi students in the community Emmanuel over local schools’ discriminatory policies, it seems racial discrimination in Israel is still alive and kicking.
