Education ministry should not ignore cases of Haredi soldiers whose children are barred from anti-military yeshivas

The Jewish Press says the education ministry's going soft on ultra-Orthodox yeshivas shunning children whose parents serve in the army:
Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Chairman MK Dichter (Likud) said on Tuesday that ”Based on the answers of the Ministry of Education, I understand that the state is adopting an approach of surrender, instead of acting with all its might. Those who prevent a relative of an IDF soldier from receiving state services should shake in their boots. We will deal with this issue at the next session of the Knesset and we will demand to hear more concrete solutions.”

MK Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) said, “I receive many calls from women whose husbands serve in the army and their children are not accepted into schools or preschools, because they are always last in line.”

The committee members wished to know why the Ministry of Education is not more active in this fight and Benayahu Tabila, representing the Haredi Dept. of the Ministry of Education responded that “our mission is education and the challenge is to ascertain that as many Haredi children as possible receive the proper education, while in many Haredi communities this has already created opposition against us, and therefore it is uncertain whether we should be the spearhead in the fight for enlistment.”
This is not good if the ministry's failing to address the problem, presumably because they don't want a fallout with the Haredi parties in the Knesset. Any yeshivas pulling this crap should be barred from receiving any state funding, that's for sure.
