    The views of the girl's parents should be respected. Even though their position may seem radical, the parents have every right to decide the type of education their children receive. Segregation in schools may make the most rational individual uncomfortable, but unfortunatelly it is the reality of the world in which we live. Even the most democratic states have segregated schools. In this case religion is the main factor but in other societies it may be determined by the financial situation of the parents. All around the world the rich for the most part send their children to private schools which the poor or middle class in those societies cannot afford. Isn't that a form of segregation? So before building another fence or deporting the Ultra-Orthodox out the country, one must examine the reality of the world.
