    In religious families they want the school to put an emphasis on Torah etc but most secular families don't want their kids going to school where they are learning all about Jewish issues or where their children should dress modestly out of respect to the religious. This is a cultural divide and its not fair to ask either to change their cultural attitudes so let religious Jews send their kids to religious schools and secualr kids just go to regular schools that way everybody is amongst the people they can relate to or being asked to do something they don't want to do. As Israel becomes an increasingly secularised society which it has the religious divide will just get deeper not smaller and we can't pretend that schools will bridge that divide. The only thing thats going to solve it is the ADULTS on BOTH sides trying to be tolerant of the others and not taking the attitude my way is the correct way. If both sides can respect but but accept they are different and will not agree on many issues then your going to solve the problem because nothing else will work. The media also has a large role to play, no more haredi bashing stories, when somebody does something newsworthy report it but don't go afttr the haredi on every little issue and criticise it because they are being judged by secular standards.
