Dispute over admission of S'fardim to school

It seems to me that two separate issues are being conflated:

1) Verbal and social racism, which is a terrible ill we have to figure out how to address

2) The right of a 'public' school to set strict standards on how their students and their families behave, in and out of the house.

I'll throw in a third point of view.

My main point (which somehow, keeps getting lost by commenters assuming I'm in favor of the Chareidi position) is that I think its wrong to imprison the parents over this (this includes Sephardi parents as well).

Close the school, dry up their funding, bring in the military to enforce integration.

But jailing the parents?

We've all lost today.

Jameel, I agree that jailing the parents is not the best way to handle the situation.

Larry, I think you're right about two issues being involved, and thanks for the link.
