“The nafka mina is if we did send to P.S., eventually they would build enough schools to accommodate.”
who do you think will pay for the new schools, teachers etc.?
ctl: My question is, if the federal government allows credits for non-compulsory education at private universities, why can’t it allow credits for compulsory education in private schools?
“Public Schools HAVE to accommodate ALL residents who wish to enroll. ”
However the reality is they cannot. Many Public schools are already bursting , I dont think the schools are opperatign at much of a surplus. The sudden addition of 100,000 students would overwhelm the system and its finances.
Thanks for the info regarding Kosher food. Though htis may change as recently, State Assemblyman David Weprin has introduced legislation requiring public schools to offer food that meets a student’s religious dietary restrictions.
Without entering the debate over school vouchers (one side of which you rather cogently represented above), I think there is an important point which must be made in response to your general approach here.
It sounds to me from your posts hat you have been rather successful financially, and I am very happy for you.
The fact is that there are many families where both parents are very hard working and which struggle financially. I personally am gainfully employed from about 7:40 a.m. until around 10:00 p.m., with only a couple of “breaks in the action,” during which time I play and do homework with my children. This is my schedule for most of the school year. During the summer, I have some more free time, but I do work. My wife works several hours a day during the school year, and all day during the summer.
We work no less than you do, and, I suspect, quite a bit more. We nevertheless find ourselves in a very difficult financial position because of the cost of living. This is no complaint; I am exceedingly grateful to HKBH for all that I have. It is merely a statement of fact in response to your post.
I think your rather intelligent and deliberate opinion would command more respect (at least in my own mind) if it were coupled with a bit of empathy.
