Oh, joy. Another generation of ignorant unemployables.

Yeshivas to receive State funds without teaching basic subjects
Knesset approves bill granting ultra-Orthodox education institutions funds without requiring them to uphold Education Ministry curriculum, including subjects such as math, English. Meretz: New law scandalous

...Meretz Chairwoman Zahava Gal-On claimed that "this is a scandalous law. For the first time ultra-Orthodox ignorance is being funded lawfully. I support cultural autonomy, but if a community requests State funds it must be willing to honor and respect its civil and cultural values.

"Does the study of mathematics and English threaten Judaism? The Knesset has succumbed to Rabbinical and ultra-Orthodox terror. The issue depends on the High Court of Justice, and the Knesset has essentially legislated behind the judges' backs..."

This is not preparing for a viable future - it's preparing for economic destruction.

On the other hand, maybe that's the real goal here - to eliminate the Chereidi community through economic collapse. Hmmmmm. Something to think about.
