Haredi principal refuses girl student because her sister studies in academia

And this appears to be a male principal we're talking about here:
Another clash occurred between the Ministry of Education and a haredi educational institution when it was discovered that a haredi school principal refuses to accept a female student based on the fact that her older sister is studying at an academic institution of higher education, anathema in the haredi sector.

According to a report from Reshet Bet, the principal, with support from the United Torah Judaism (UTJ) party, is refusing to accept the student because her older sister continued her education at the Jerusalem College of Technology - Lev Academic Center, an Orthodox academic college, after she graduated from 12th grade.

An appeals committee from the Ministry of Education has informed the principal that this behavior is not permissible, but the principal was not swayed.

"The student will not study here even if 500 other students and all the teachers have to suffer because of it,” the principal is quoted as saying.

The Ministry of Education released a statement in response saying that the principal is obligated to accept the student at the school immediately. If he does not, then the ministry will take action against him in accordance with the law.

In an interview, the father of the student said that his daughter has been sitting at home for 35 days. “I am haredi and I vote for UTJ,” he said, and added that he has appealed to MK Gafni, who denied that he supports the school’s decision. “Our representation in the Ministry of Education has failed,” he said, possibly alluding the Deputy Minister of Education, UTJ MK Meir Porush.
Well they shouldn't vote for UTJ if they're sanctioning this kind of behavior. In fact, the student shouldn't even have to learn at such an awful place. I'm guessing though, that homeschooling is also anathema in some Haredi communities.

The principle himself should be disbarred from education. Interesting how female principles are apparently not allowed at a Haredi girls' school, run as it is by a male principle.
