To answer Joseph’s question, I pay $17k a year for two kids; one in 3rd grade the other in kindergaarten. They go to the cheaper of the two schools in my area that are acceptable to me and my wife. The other school costs around $20k. The tuition issue will be resolved by lesser committed parents who will opt to send their kids to public school. I think when that happens, Orthodox schuls will re-start the after school talmud Torahs of yore in order to keep those families afiliated with the community. Other paretns may decide to go for that option also, and that is when tuition will start to go down. It’s all about competition and supply and demand. And it’s already happening; both in places like the Five Towns, NYC and “out of town.”
