    Government knew about council faith school cover-up as thousands of pupils 'disappeared'
    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...-a6965516.html

    "Former pupils, whistleblowers and campaigners have told The Independent that the boys, who belong to ultra-Orthodox Jewish families, are taken out of the schooling system by the age of 13. After this age, they attend extremely strict faith schools where lessons are conducted in Yiddish, speaking English is banned, physical beating occurs and children are encouraged to enter arranged marriages upon turning 18."
    :eek:

    I know this is particularly bad and illegal faith school (that government covered up) but why do we even have faith schools at all? If I had my way I'd make all schools secular.

    The Hackney local council knew this for years and didn't do anything- this is what I call the start of our local councils falling. Those Jewish boys have a crap school education because of their local council and their crap teachers- I feel like beating them up

    OP is clearly a leftist cuck who wishes to distract people from Islam by bringing attention to the Jews.
    Yeah... when I say make all schools secular that means getting rid of Muslim faith schools.

    Anyway I thought you anti-Semitic wingnuts thought everything was a distraction from the Jewish conspiracy.

    Jewish people have a right to a secular education, but the constant whinging about yeshivot is a pointless distraction given how benign Orthodox Judaism is.

    That isn't benign.

    I agree with the beating issue being problematic, my apologies.



    The constant whataboutery being applied to Jewish people massively annoys me.

    Hear, hear.

    Simply no need for faith schools. This one doesn't sound like a state one but I certainly don't support state funding for any religious school.
