As YWN has been reporting, New York State is taking steps towards stricter enforcement of its education requirements on yeshiva elementary schools.
In line with recently released NYS Education Department guidelines, all yeshiva elementary schools must teach a ‘substantially equivalent education’ to public schools, with a minimum of six hours of secular studies daily.
The new regulations leave little flexibility for what yeshiva elementary schools may teach.
