Schools to High Court: Our Budgets were Cut Illegally


More than 40 unofficial but recognized elementary schools with programs tailored to the religious Zionist, hareidi and Arab communities petitioned the Supreme Court, Thursday, against a 45-million-shekel ($12.9 million) budget cut by the Ministry of Education.

The petition contends that the bureaucrats who made the decision did not have the authority to do so and that the decision was against the law. It states further that the budget cut could lead to the collapse of these programs in areas where there is no alternative.
