Out of the 43 so called ashkenasi families, 13 are actually sephardi!!!! come on, the haredim may look crazy, but they are not racist!!! I would also highly urge Mr. Anshel Pfeffer to get his facts straight so he can do some honest reporting! These families are not asking for public funding for their kids to go to school, they are willing to send them out of town to PRIVATE schools and suffer considerable financial loss in order to protect their children. The issues are NOT racially based, but rather, based on a fear of the other kids having a bad influence on their children.
