Shas agrees to teach math in their schools in exchange for funding

So the Shas party has agreed to the requirements which are meant to benefit their students' futures:
Ultra-Orthodox schools connected to the Shas political party’s education system will begin teaching students core subjects such as science and math, in exchange for continued state funding, officials said Monday night.

The deal, which is being touted as a historic reform, was agreed to by Finance Minister Yair Lapid, Education Minister Shai Piron and Shas head Aryeh Deri. [...]

The agreement will obligate the Shas school system to implement core studies into its curriculum within six months. Haredi schools have traditionally balked at offering instruction in secular subjects, such as English, math and sciences, instead devoting resources to Jewish study.

Lapid and Piron’s Yesh Atid party characterized the deal as the first time in the history of Israel that the ultra-Orthodox school network would fall in line with the rest of the country’s education system.
The important part is to monitor their system to ensure that they're teaching the subjects as required in this part of the deal. If they don't, then funding must be suspended/withdrawn immediately.

And Deri is still someone to be careful about, since no matter what he's agree to here, he's still a crook and will exploit every opportunity he gets for it.
