Hundreds took part in a Beit Shemesh conference attended by members of the tzibur and professionals alike, addressing the education network in the city. It was revealed that in 2010, a startling 63% of all students are affiliated with the chareidi sector, and that number is expected to continue increasing.

27% of the students in the city are identified with the dati leumi community, with the remaining 10% from the secular public schools. 17,300 students are chareidi; 7,000 dati leumi and 2,900 in the secular public school system. It should be pointed out the number does not include the many talmidim in mosdos aligned with the Eida Chareidis in Beit Shemesh.
