Haredis in academia aren't integrating if they won't learn alongside opposite sex

Some plans were greenlighted for getting Haredi students into academia, but it seems as though it was only on their terms, assuming they demanded it:
The new multiyear plan aims to continue the trend of the increasing number of ultra-Orthodox students enrolling in higher education by 2022, as well as continue the implementation of gender- segregated programs in institutions of higher education. [...]

Regarding gender segregation, the council acknowledged that the practice raises concerns about discrimination, both in terms of the professions open to both sexes and with regards to the level of studies in academic institutions.

However, the council said it has concluded that “the integration of ultra-Orthodox into higher education justifies these unique frameworks due to the pedagogical and cultural gap.”

According to data from research studies, the council emphasized that without establishing gender segregated frameworks, 70% to 80% of the ultra-Orthodox population would not seek higher education studies.

However, the council stressed that “gender segregation takes place only to minimum required, while ensuring basic values in the field of equality, safeguarding academic freedom and preventing discrimination.”
I hope so. But from what I can tell here, it's the council that's making the argument, not the Haredi representatives or practitioners themselves. If the Haredis refuse to attend a mixed gender setting, and want to throw away a chance to get better education because of petty religious customs, that's their loss and fault, not the university's. It's regrettable, but maybe no surprise, that the university would go out of their way to arrange any such tommyrot for them.

And if that's how the Haredis want it, then they're not integrating.
