If they don't comply with the requirements of the state, they cannot receive funding, and Shai Piron is now taking additional steps to bring them in line
Education Minister Shay Piron decided to take a tough stance against the haredi education system, after a report from the Finance Ministry pointed to serious shortcomings in schools managed by the ultra-Orthodox Shas Party.
The Education Ministry has adopted a plan that would dismantle the current department overseeing haredi schools. Instead, it will establish a new, public-haredi school management authority to be staffed by 15 supervisory boards comprising supervisors drawn from outside the haredi community.
Good idea. Shas officials certainly can't be trusted to turn in honest reports.
