In my opinion the issue is freedom and not anything else.
As a religious person you HAD to learn certain things.
You had no choice, or at least you had much less choice
then non-religious person.
As a religious person you also believe that certain
things you learn are "the truth", and again, your
choice to question this truth is much smaller then
a non religious person.
Some non-religious people CHOOSE to learn in YESHIVA,
and some don't. This is their choice. Some of them
choose to learn other things.
The president is mistaken because he assumes that
certain things are more important to know then others.
Even in the context of being Israeli, I believe that
one can argue that the history of the 19th and the
20th century for example is more important to be
learned then to learn the bible.
This smaller freedom means also that the religious
people as a group are much closer to that baby that
the president speaks about then the non-religous
