Haredi girls school in Elad closed for anti-Sephardic discrimination

A blatant case of discrimination against specific backgrounds has led to a school shutdown:
The director of the Haredi education sector in the Education Ministry Meir Shimoni decided to close a haredi girls school in the city of Elad due to its discrimination against Sephardi pupils.

The Zleznik Seminar school in Elad conducted an application process for pupils for the new academic year back in June. 118 girls applied, 93 Sephardi and 25 Ashkenazi.

Of the Sephardi applicants just five gained admission, whereas all 25 of the Ashkenazi pupils were accepted.

The Education Ministry intervened following legal objections by the Noar K’halacha anti-discrimination NGO and forced the school to annul the registrations and re-open the application process.

The school re-opened registration and of the 41 Sephardi girls who applied to the school, 23 were accepted.

However, it then established a new school for Ashkenazi students who were taught at a different site without the Sephardi girls.

Last week the Education Ministry warned the Zleznik school and the Mayor of Elad Yisrael Porush that the school would face closure and a cessation of state funding unless 50 percent of its pupils were Sephardi.

The school did not comply leading to the ministry’s decision on Monday to close it down.
This might not have occurred at a boys school. It's mainly girls in Haredi societies who've endured problems like these, just another reason why it's not the best lifestyle for them.
