    30% Teens – Hidden Dropouts

    “dysfunctional students”?

    why not “dysfunctional educational system”?

    such articles should be written in a way that reflects the reality. schools aren’t doing their job in stimulating, attracting and harnessing natural creativity and diversity in the youth, nor addressing emotional needs of a large chunk of mainstream children.

    zero focus should be on the shortcoming or fault of the students.

    not to say the challenge of being able to appropriately educate today’s youth is not great.

    but call it as it is.

    "willingness of haredi institutions to accommodate dysfunctional students"?!?

    "willingness of haredi institutions to accommodate dysfunctional students"?!?

    the reason is exactly the opposite: the elitist approach of charedi institutions, marginalizing the non-iluy student.

    at best, keeping them in the system without addressing their needs, and at worst, sending them to fringe programs to rid themeselves of the responsibility can hardly be describes as “accomodating”.

    not much hope left if the mevinim come to such conclusions.

    And while we are at it, we can look at our own community and probably see some similar numbers. The times are challenging, mistakes have been made, my children as well as many others were the korbanim, let’s hope the leadership can come up with a better plan for the next generation of children educated in our system.
