This statistics is incredible! Especially when noting that the girls are the ones receiving the limited offer of cored education. I have two things to point out: 1) The Ministerial Committee for Legislation and other bureaucratic agencies really need to get some more will power to do what is right. Although they may not want to step on any toes due to political power or any coalition situations, this constant resistance to change any structure of the Haredi system- especially to the schools- will have a detrimental effect not only to the Haredim, but also to the rest of the secular population who will have to deal with this growing group who receives an education which has shown to have a negative correlation with income. 2) My next point is just that. Since the 1990's the market return (as measured through wages) for religious education has been decreasing as wages are smaller and their skills are not as useful to Israel's labor market. As much as i believe this is both a Haredi and a government problem, I do believe that the State needs to take the initiative to change this and provide/mandate other options that will allow the Haredi community to gain more job training and skills which will in turn only do good for Israel's economy.
