Compromise: Ethiopians to be accepted into Petah Tikva schools without exams

All immigrant pupils from Ethiopia will be accepted into religious schools throughout Petah Tikva in accordance to his or her place of residence, according to a compromise reached between Petah Tikva Mayor Itzik Ohayon and all the schools' principles. According to the municipality, 30 students will learn in the school that originally refused to accept the Ethiopian students.


The compromise reached stipulates that the students will be taken into mainstream classrooms without any entry exams. In addition, a State-funded personal curriculum will be tailored to each student so that he or she will integrate as quickly as possible into the student body. (Raanan Ben Zur)
