Growth of both Arabic and Haredi schoolchildren expected to slow

Globes has some potentially good news for everybody worried about both the influence of Islamism and Haredis in the country:
Belying fear-mongering about the increased proportion of Arab pupils, the Central Bureau of Statistics says that the proportion of Jewish schoolchildren will rise from 73% in 2012 to 74% in 2019, and that the proportion of Arab schoolchildren will decline from 27% to 26%.

Within the Jewish community, the Central Bureau of Statistics data show a different picture from conventional wisdom, indicating changes resembling the expected change in the Arab community. The annual growth rate of haredi (ultra-orthodox) children is forecast to slow: from an average annual growth rate of 4.7% in primary education in 2001-12 to 3.6% a year in 2013-19; and from an average annual growth rate of 4% in secondary education to 2.3%. The growth rate of schoolchildren in the state school and religious state school systems is projected to pick up in 2013-19, compared with 2001-12: from 0.34% a year in 2001-12 to 1.43% in primary education; and from minus 0.81% a year in 2001-12 to plus 0.1% in 2013-19 in secondary education.
And if the workforce numbers rise as the Haredis and Arabs make positive steps to join it, that too will be good news.
