A Belgian court has reportedly rejected an appeal by haredim against a Belgian government ruling mandating haredi schools to teach the country's secular core subjects.
An injunction sought by haredim to delay the implementation of the government's ruling was reportedly strongly denied today by the court.
This was reportedly the haredi community's last appeal.
Children who fail standardized government tests will have an opportunity to retake the test and pass it. But students who fail to pass both tests will be forced to attend a school officially sanctioned by the government.
Some haredi community members previously threatened to leave the country is the new law mandating their schools to teach math and science was implemented.
