Educational diversification allowed and encouraged by pluralism is the opposite of diversity due to segregation: the one is tolerant and open, the other intolerant and restrictive. The education system of Israeli non-Jews is segregated, and administered by the Ministry of the Interior. Jewish theocracy justifies the discrimination post hoc and caused the Israeli education system to split into shades of religiosity, which is not pluralist as it breeds intolerance and narrow curriculum.
