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.
In a candid video released today by Agudas Yisroel, HaRav Yisroel Reisman, Mora D’asra of Agudath Israel of Madison and Rosh Yeshiva of Torah Vodaath delivers a warning to Klal Yisroel about the danger facing our time-tested system of Chinuch. Warning that this will impact yeshivos and Bais Yaakovs across New York State, Rabbi Reisman calls the new Substantial Equivalency guidelines, “Draconian, outrageous, and immediate.”
Watch this important video to see how this new gezeirah can affect your child, grandchild, nephew or niece.
