Principals may not attend hearing on refusal to enroll Ethiopian students

The principals of three non-official recognized religious schools in Petah Tikva that have refused to enroll Ethiopian students may not arrive at a hearing they are schedule to have on Sunday afternoon with Director-General of the Education Ministry Dr. Shimshon Shoshani. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday called the schools' refusal to accept the Ethiopian students a "moral terror attack." In a joint interview with Army Radio and Israel Radio, on a special day of broadcasts dedicated to battling violence, Netanyahu said that schools that refuse to enroll Ethiopians will be punished, and vowed there would be no racial discrimination against Ethiopians in Israel.
