I was the first one of the first to shout "discrimination" until today.
One of my kids is a quiet, studious child who has always had good school friends and never made mischief.
The principal took all the 4th grade boys, divided them up and made 3 new classes.
My son's class now has kids in it that my son is scared of; kids who look like they are up to trouble even when they're not, and worse.
A look at the class list showed what I hated to admit but now am forced to see for myself - the overwhelming majority of the class is sephardi including boys that no self-respecting parent wants their kid associating with. The principal made a point of adding a few "good boys" to the class so that no-one could complain.
Guess what - I AM complaining - my son needs to be with like-minded kids, who will not bully him, teach him about things that no 4th grader needs to know, or other.
It is tragic but true that there is a cultural divide; not all sephardim are rough, there are wonderful separdic families that I don't reach the ankles of, but the facts, at least in this class, spoke louder than words.
