The Ministerial Committee for Legislation on Sunday approved a bill that cancels the obligation of the study of core curriculum in chareidi institutions in order to receive government funding, after it was brought up and voted on in the weekly Cabinet meeting.
Under the new law, part of the coalition agreement between the Likud and UTJ, the schools do not need to teach ten hours weekly of the core curriculum, as a condition for funding.
This new law essentially eliminates the law passed by Yesh Atid in the previous government, and gives the current Education Minister Naftali Bennett broad authority to fund these institutions unconditionally.
The Education Ministry said last week that Bennett intends to determine future regulations concerning the core curriculum in chareidi institutions.
The final passing of the law in the Knesset is presumed to be sometime next week.
