The school is not discriminating in essense - they rely on the testing score. I am not sure that the affirmative action is appropriate for the school for the gifted. What this may show is that children in Northern Tel Aviv score better for whatever reason. They are not preferred to the other kids because they are wealthy. What the government needs to do is institute more programs for children who score less for them to catch up with the rest of the children and improve the overall quality of public schools. Stop seeing discrimination and injustice everywhere. Israeli education system is problematic but not discriminating.
