The Israeli high court has caved
to the demands of poorly run Haredi schools to not adhere to state curriculum:
The High Court of Justice voted 7-2 on Wednesday to uphold the constitutionality of a law permitting certain Haredi schools to opt out of teaching core general studies as long as they simultaneously took a hit in public funding.
The law provides an exemption from the study of the core curriculum to ultra-Orthodox high schools grades nine through 12, called "small yeshivas." According to the law these institutions will be exempt from teaching general studies, though they will receive funding of only 60% compared to institutions in which students learn a core curriculum.
It makes no difference. If they won't teach subjects like math, then they're effectively crippling their students and in fact, they're showing them nothing but contempt. And the court allows this, proving they don't care about them any more than the insular Haredi leaderships do.
