IDF service
The US also exempted yeshiva students from the draft as "divinity students". The questions are: 1. Does Israel still need a draft? If so, how many does it need?In what capacities (for example, just as there are jobniks in various fields who are necessary to the IDF a Jewish state should recognize the contribution of those who are learning full-time)? 2. How many are really learning and not just registered?

If the goal is truly sharing the burden of military service, then the solution you propose is excellent. Unfortunately, I believe than many have the goal of destroying the haredim and advocate the assimilationist route precisely because they are unwilling to tolerate haredism.
