Shas announced Monday evening that its chairman, Aryeh Deri, and Finance Minister Yair Lapid have reached an agreement with Education Minister Shai Piron under which the finance minister will shelve his plan to cut funding the ultra-Orthodox party’s school system – including the Ma’ayan Hahinuch Hatorani network and independent Shas schools.

Shas, in turn, agreed to cooperate with the State-haredi education network and follow the guidelines of the Education Ministry, meaning the religious party would have to teach the core curriculum at its schools.

“This is a historic night. Haredi schools will be subject to standardized testing and core studies in order to gain funding,” Piron told Ynet.
