A nursery school in Beersheba employs racist segregation, separating Ethiopian children from those of other ethnic backgrounds, Channel 2 reported Wednesday.

All kids enter through the same door, but then proceed to separate rooms, each group with its own nursery teacher. The kindergarten is a state-supervised institution.

Hidden camera footage documented one of the teachers saying "What do you mean, separated, they (the two groups) were never together." The practice appeared to have been going on for a long time.

In addition, the Ethiopian kids' room was unkempt and smaller in comparison to the other room.

The Education Ministry criticized the revelation and promised to investigate.
