Students at a London girls yeshiva should not be deterred from wearing “Brightly colored clothing” according to new guidelines from the government. In addition, the government agency in question also ruled that the yeshiva must accept more students for certain grade levels than its current limit.
According to a report in the UK’s Jewish Chronicle, an anonymous complaint was filed with the Office of the Schools Adjudicator (OSA) against several policies of Yesodey Hatorah Senior Girls School in Hackney- clearly singling out the Jewish educational institute.
As per the OSA, while the school has the right to prohibit certain colors, the current instructions are too vague, and the yeshiva must be more specific in its definition of “bright”.
In addition, the agency also ruled that the yeshiva must accept more students for certain grade levels than its current limit. However, Dr. Slater overruled one complaint that suggested that the state-owned yeshiva’s admission policies are discriminatory.
