Israeli Ultra-orthodox Education

It comes as a surprise (serendipitous, though) to me that Jews of Israel have their own ultra-orthodox schools which teach nothing but the Torah – Jewish Bible, according to this article in BBC.

"But now a group of leading secular Israelis wants to force the ultra-orthodox, or Haredi, education system to modernize and adopt standard subjects like Maths, Science and English."

Something like a Madarasa? The Israel schools are called Haredi. Seem there students don't even know Maths and Science and after graduation are supported by the Israeli state.
