Slippery Slope

Notes From a Crumbling Democracy

Education: May 17, 2011

State Comptroller, Micha Lindenstrauss, states in his annual report that the ultra-orthodox sector of the education system discriminates against students of Mizrachi descend. The report states that, among other issues, high schools for girls in the ultra-orthodox sector have quota for students from Sefaradi families. Although the Ministry of Education in 2006 directed 60 ultra-Orthodox schools to change some of the admission rules, the rules were not changed, and the Ministry did not follow up on the directions.
