Legitimizing public schooling and innovative education policies in strict religious communities: the story of the new Haredi public education stream in Israel
The study explored how a group of private Haredi (ultra-Orthodox Jewish) Israeli schools legitimized an innovative non-mandatory reform. Specifically, it examined the circumstances that facilitated and hindered a coincidence of wants between the schools and the Israel Ministry of Education, which resulted in signing agreements that changed the status of the schools from private to public. The study drew on interviews and on various documents, including contracts, summaries of meetings, and work plans.

Teacher Diversity and the Right to Adaptable Education in the Religiously Oriented School: What Can We Learn From Students’ Perceptions?
This study examines students’ perceptions of disparities between teachers’ views and the school ethos in a religiously oriented school, and dissects the implications of such disparities on the children’s right to adaptable education.

It conceptualises the conflict between the right to acceptable education and the right to adaptable education in international human rights law, and analyses four case studies of Haredi education that exemplify different socio-legal approaches towards this conflict. The case studies show how education laws are transformed along the cogwheels of education policy, in which there are plural normative orders and many agents who implement them
