Missing boys in Charedi schools

    Last night Newsnight ran a lengthy report on the “missing boys” – the hundreds of Charedi youngsters in Stamford Hill being taught in unregistered schools.

    I am not quite sure how “exclusive” it was since we have been reporting on this for years, and other media have picked up the issue too.

    The Department for Education has got tougher and recently ordered one unregistered primary school to close.

    It follows calls for action from Ofsted chief Sir Michael Wilshaw.

    But my reports here and here also explain why the Department has been wary of closure orders.
