Antwerp - Sons Of Former Neturei Karta Member Must Be Admitted To All-Girls Belgian School, Judge Rules -- VosIzNeias.com


Quote:
The school board argued that Orthodox Judaism requires the separation of the sexes for educational instruction. Moreover, the board said it is not equipped to educate male students as it does not have male teachers on staff and lacks basic infrastructure such as separate restrooms.
So what to you think about this?

A Belgian judge ruled that because yeshivas are subsidized by the Flemish community, Benoth Jerusalem must admit the boys or face a $2,600 penalty per child for each day the boys are not permitted to attend.
If the school wants to ability to limit admission by gender then it needs to forgo public funding.
Seems simple enough to me.

But it does strike me as odd that the rabbi would make such a demand knowing full well that orthodox standards do not allow it.

Agreed. Orthodox standards to not allow mixed gender schools except for very young children (like approx. kindergarten age).

Not sure I see why somebody is trying to force boys into an all-girl school? Are the boys unable to be served properly in that community and that's their only option? Or is this just more inflammatory stuff for the fun of it?

He's claiming that the Jewish community is "retaliating" against him for his political views (he's Neturei Karta), and that his children have been barred from attending the Jewish boys' schools in the area.
