My cousin is a rabbi in the UK he married one of these haredi women who had very little education in the real world and when she first married she was amazed to hear about ordinary things that even religious families take for granted. She lad never learned to drive a car, she didn't know how to use the internet. She had basically been taught all the things needed to be a good wife and mother and not much about the outside world. I also do not blame the haredi sector for being the way they are because for generations they have all grown up in the same way and the state has never questioned it. You can't punish a child for doing the wrong thing if the parent has never made an effort to teach. if you give somebody money all their life and tell them no strings you want to study Torah or go swim in the sea all day I don't mind you will get the money then if you say one day I want you to get a job and earn your own money they will naturally object and say its wrong and unfair why should they be forced to get a job but in time when the money stops coming in they will say I geus a better get a job if I don't want to starve. Get one generation to learn they can teach their children the basics as well as Torah study or you can have a job and study when you get home and slowly thinking will start to change. It won't change overnight and there will be objection. Don't condemn the haredi pity the fact that their parents and grandparents etc have all been telling them no need to go to school and learn math the only thing school is good for is learning Torah. It is possible to have a Torah observant lifestyle and study and learn the core subjects and even to hold down jobs.
