    I met someone recently whom, I found out later, went to the same elementary school that I did. She looked like a regular goyish lady with multiple earrings and 100% untzinius clothing. During our conversation, she explained that she was orthodox at one point in her life, but during her elementary school years, her parents were divorced and they couldnt afford tuition so they sent all their children to public school. She said her brother went to a frum high school but look where her family ended up! We need to be more aware of what is happening in our schools and community! Why wasn’t this family offered a scholarship? Are scholarships only for “rebbe’s children”? Scholarships should be given to the ones who need it the most! Maybe if she didnt have to pay full price she would have been enrolled in the local beis yaakov. Maybe this is one reason why so many are going off the derech….
