Haredi yeshiva with radical agenda to provide high school, higher education courses

The haredi education system has long been seen as one of the defining factors of the community’s identity and the key to shaping the haredi identity of the next generation.

And one of the defining characteristics of the system is the refusal of haredi leaders to allow boys schools to teach core curriculum subjects such as Math, Science, English and all the other disciplines which make up the mainstay of a general education.

This arrangement creates severe difficulties for men who wish to join the workforce after their yeshiva studies, since their lack of even a rudimentary education blocks access to institutes of higher education.
