For the person who bashed the Cleveland school bosses, the other side of that story is that the amount of scholarships that are given at the Cleveland Schools is AMAZING. One school in particular has a guarantee that no child will be turned away for inability to pay and plenty of kids go there paying virtually no tuition.

I hate to say, but when we give our girls an education that only allows them to work in frum schools, the supply exceeds the demand and administrators that want to cut corners with halacha and derech eretz can find many easy replacements, which means they have no external incentive to change their behaviour.
So the bochrim expect to be paid to do the mitzvah of being m’sameach chasson and kallah? I’ve never heard of such a thing. Should the kallah’s parents be expected to pay for gas for everyone who comes to a wedding? Bochrim could pool their money and travel together. But I think it’s rediculous to ask for a family that’s already paying for a chassunah and perhaps x years of support to pay for guests to come to a wedding.
Yasher koach to him. It’s one thing if you live in chutz l’aretz, but you shouldn’t have to see this on tv in a Jewish country.
