    Say What?!

    One would think that with all these fancy conferences that these people attend our kids would actually get a decent education. And a bonus it would be if they actually are able, upon completion of a grueling 12 year, 12 hour a day schedule, to communicate effectively and coherently in ANY language.

    Just sayin’

    I Hope that Some of the key issues are being discussed along with the shortfalls we face in Chabad school system today: 1. A lack of professionally educated or trained staff. 2.

The reluctance to adopt or accept new teaching method and curriculum. 6. The lack of a competent secular education. These are concerns that obviously, can not be dealt with all at once; however a Mosod who has the desire to become a… Read more »

    If all you critics really care then you would realize on your own the number one issue is,if you don’t pay the teacher well they can’t teach well!!!

    oy.

    teachers are willing to learn, but it’s the blind leading the blind.

    no it’s not lack of money, per se, it’s lack of educational standards.

    no point in elaborating here, tho. the circus will go on. those that seek real education will leave the fold.

    It’s time to get out of our overalls and spend quality time with our kids. Kids that are payed attention to at home and not just at school have a greater chance of surviving and coming out the way that us parents want them to. Not only do the Mechanchim need to be Dugma chayos but even us parents need to be. We can’t expect our children to grow and prosper in a chassidishe way if we don’t spend time with them and encourage them in that way. We are the role models for our children, they look up to… Read more »

    Why the negativity?

    Ok so maybe your kid doesn’t get the best education, but as a graduate of a pretty decent school, I can honestly say that most of what I learned, I learned at home. More important than being a straight A student in gemorah, is being a straight A student in middos, and that is only something you as in a mother or father can teach to your children. Stop criticizing: if you think there is something wrong with the system, work on a way to improve it. Don’t stand on the side and complain.
