What Can You Do to Stop Regulations That Threaten Our Schools?

Attention Parents: We are facing an imminent threat to our way of life, as there has been a push on the governmental level, to insert the secular way of life into our Torah-true values through our school curriculums. As a community, we must act now. Full Story

When there is pnimiyus in teaching, (not just book knowledge)there wont be any trouble from the government. Teachers have to be practicing what they preach, not just preach. Government is in the hands of G-d almighty. Hashem is seeing what we are teaching our children and we have to correct our ways. When our ways are corrected the government will stop bothering us.

These all seem like important regulations to protect children and their right to be educated.

If providing an education and qualified teachers is a threat to your way of life then you simply aren’t frum. You’re something else entirely.

Really?

Are they insisting that all Jewish children are learning chumash and rashi?

I am sorry but you are missing the point. These guidelines will leave it to the local educational bureaucrats to decide if what we are teaching is correct. It does not state that these folks will be following a certain metric or guide. It states simple that that the Jewish schools need to be providing education equivalency. Who determines that “equivalency”? That will be the State, and we cannot let the State which has a failing education system to tell us what they will deem ok.

Government intervention

The Rebbeim have always fought against government intervention in their attempts to secularize jewish education

teaching children in only yiddish speaking communities more english will give them opportunities as adults… Perhaps there is something incredibly kind about these regulations.

Number one there little to no schools in CH that teach in yiddish today. Our education system has definitely changed since my days, and for the better.

Having the State being the one to decide what we can and cannot teach is not the solution. The beauty about chinuch today in CH is that their are options.

These rules will not just affect the schools that do not teach secular subject, but even those that do. There is something if even schools likfe Haftor, Ramaz and others stand united against these proposed regulations.

Consideration needs to be made

We need to pay attention to those that spearheaded this desire for change in the first place. That is from our very own Jewish girls and boys who did not fit into the mold and were left without any means of obtaining a GED. I don’t believe that the government should dictate curriculum but rather our own hanhalos need to take care of ALL of our children. Do they not care about those that turn to drugs and feel hopeless?
Please Rabboisai, figure out a way to help those that would benefit from basic skills.

Funding

If the government provides different kinds of fundings it is logical that if you accept them , it should have the right to Propose some kind of guidelines , at least to improve teachers in their jobs

Why should schools that do not receive any funding be told what to do?
Do we not believe in America where we have freedom of choice, or does that not apply to education? As a parent we should be allowed to send out kids to the schools of our choice, and as a country with religious freedoms, then our schools should be allowed the freedom to operate and teach as they see fit.
