Parents appeal sex segregation in school

A group of parents from Petah Tikva petitioned the High Court of Justice on Monday against an Education Ministry decision to separate between boys and girls in the “Morasha” religious elementary school.

The parents’ representative, Dr. Aviad Hacohen, dean of the Shaarei Mishpat College, argued that “this is a serious infringement of freedom of religion and conscience.” The court is expected to discuss the case on Thursday.

Dr. Hacohen noted that most of the students’ parents oppose sex segregation – and that this was made clear in a democratic vote held several months ago. He further argued that the intention contradicts a decision made by the Petah Tikva mayor and City Council, and its Education Administration.
