Quote of the Day

You hit the Haredim in order to gather mandates, you've pushed the Haredim outside of the camp. Learn from me: when you approach the Haredim as friends, you can reach achievements. The Haredim by you are second class. Why, for God's sake, did Yair Lapid say that a 6 year old Haredi child can't go to day camp because he does not learn core curriculum? What is the connection?
My policy regarding the core curriculum is ... the bulldozer approach does not work. I will tell you a secret - before you came around, there were increasingly more haredi students joining [academic studies] each year. Suddenly Yesh Atid shows up and that decreases.
You love to use the brute-force method against the Haredim. My approach is, I am not canceling the core curriculum requirements...I am dealing with it together with my beloved deputy minister and each year you see more Haredim. I believe in dialogue and not with beatings..


  -- Minister of Education, directed at Yesh Atid

  1. The secret to effecting change in the Chareidi community is subtle: you do it quietly. This allows them to slowly adjust while at each step they continue to claim that nothing has changed.

    1. Exactly - whoever makes a big deal of announcing what he is doing either is interested only in PR or has no understanding of the Charedi community.

    2. Dr. Ironheart is right. Along with that, attrition has had a continuous effect. As a failed subculture becomes more evident to its own adherents, they begin to seek options. Hesitantly and quietly - but seeking options nonetheless.

  2. Most people everywhere (meaning even outside of Israel) are very against common core, so it's not just the chareidi. It's part of the world agenda.

    1. Common Core in the US is very different than the core curriculum in Israel. It seems like you are confusing the two.

      And what world agenda? Who cares how public schools are run in countries other than one's own?
