    The unspoken secret!!

    as a parent of children in both boys and girls schools I have come to realize that these kinds of meetings unfortunately do not help our children, they do however help with the bottom line in someone else’s bank accounts. There is only one way that parents can make a difference, its school vouchers, however, schools would rather get government grants since they do not have to answer to anyone. I think Zaki should meet with parents to figure out how to create a “union” where the parents will actually have a say in the school system and not be… Read more »

    Wonderful work as always from Zaki.
    A small note on the food: As a communal leader, let’s show an example of nutritious snacks. Out with the Coke, in with the water. Out with the cake, in with the carrots.

    it will be extremely difficult to raise money for the new man moving from australia. He’s something of an Obama factor with no one ever seeing his ksav smicha. I would NOT want to be on any committee trying to support him. The money is better spent with Devorah Benjamin and Ten Yad.

    You are right in regard to those that lease cars and have bungalows in Evergreen. It is a chutzpa for these families to demand scholarships; even more so, for the hanholah to give them their tuition breaks. The question, though, is what about those families who can’t afford winter coats for their children this year? Do you think they need to pay for school too? There is a concept of tircha d’tzibura and we need to find those families and not only pay for their children’s education, but for their clothing too. On a completely separate note, please use spell… Read more »

    such pressure

    I cannot understand why the schools do not get funding from the government as in the UK.You just pay for kodesh studies.From what i hear there is such an enormous pressure on parents aside from education.Of course a good education is tantamount and parents must have a say in where their kids spend 7 or so hours a day.But isnt that what one pays taxes for?

    I totally agree, people grow up, you sound like immature babies. You don’t like your kids school, put him or her somewhere else, (oh, you can’t afford tuition somewhere else??? Interesting…are you the same ppl who complain tuition is too expensive here…well I guess there are no shortage of excuses) OR get involved and do something to help improve your child’s school. You are a parent, so act like you understand what that responsibility means. It means you do what you need to for your children, and don’t sit around and whine if you haven’t even tried.

    Halacha says: Funding for Chinuch is the Responsibility of the Vaad Hakohol

    According to the Alter Rebbe’s Hilchos Talmud Torah, the responsibility of Chinuch is on the entire community. This means that it’s the Halachic Obligation of the Vaad Hakohol of C.H. to take make sure that no student is thrown out of school for any reason, regardless if the reasoning is lack of financial ability by the parents to be able to pay or if the problem is that the child is “not so bright” or has learning difficulty or learning disabilities, or even if he or she is lacking in Yiras Shomayim or in other appropriate behavior. This is Halacha!… Read more »

    #5 is right !

    It’s a Chutzpah for a Menahel to even DARE to threaten parents with throwing out their children from school if they fall behind in tuition payments, when everyone knows that the Menahel himself lives on a personal fat bank account, of the blood of the poor who are thrown out of school. What do you say to a Menahel who drives a rich mans car, lives in a house which looks like a palace and otherwise lives like a rich king with a Rich Mans bungalow every summer, while he threatens to throw out the poor children who obviously can’t… Read more »

    the same parents that cant pay 5 grand send their girl to sem in israel for 15 grand! we are not talking about the poor. we are talking about the one that has a bungelo in evergreen and pay over 10,000 a month for a home but cant pay 7 grand for the year

    A Rich Man's "CRY" (nebech, the economy is SO bad, now)

    Sounds like #28 is “crying” the “cry of the rich”. In our current day economy all Rich People are crying about the bad economy. All the Rich are hurting, nebech nebech nebech. What does a poor person cry about? He cries that his children are being threatened to be thrown out of the Yeshiva or a CH Girls school and he doesn’t even have enough money to purchase new winter coats for his family of 12. A Rich Man, with only 1 child (+ a dog), also cries. What does the rich man cry about? The Rich man cries that… Read more »

    There is a CH girls school on Troy Ave which calls parents every month, threatening parents with throwing out their children from school if they don’t pay up their monthly bill. It’s not just a one time thing. They doe this each and every month to each and every parent who falls behind, if even just 1 month behind in their tuition bill. I wonder if Tamir knows about this and if he feels he should help such despicable behavior by giving them even more grant money, than what they are already collecting. Tamir should make it a policy that… Read more »

    An especially important point brought up was after-school activities for teens -and how the bigger schools might help the smaller schools access grants for this-and how this would benefit our girls and boys. On a side note, I just want to say, that that room was filled with the most important and vital people of our community. They are there -because they care. They have chosen this field of chinuch out of their love and devotion to the Rebbe and his children. They are the ones who stay up nights counseling parents, They are the ones who help push our… Read more »

    From #5, The people that are just about knocking you and your thoughts are what we call, “pigs being led to slaughter” they go with blind faith and smile! Good for them. As far as your point, it is 100% correct, its not like the schools are not capitalizing on the unfortunate circumstances of the poor. (or those that they make to look poor) they are. They go to the government and they take, and take and take money, for food, for clothing, for schooling, for not doing vouchers, you name it, if there is a program no matter how… Read more »

    Set up an independent "financial recommendation center" !

    This is my thought: Set up an independent “financial recommendation center” The way it would work is as follows, every parent that needs financial help would go to this one office (part of CHJCC). This they would do instead of having to deal directly with each of their children’s schools. This independent body would look into all the families assets and help them figure out what they can really afford by taking into account; • vacations, homes, cars, family money, etc. • They would look at the parents ability to work and (they can even see if they can help… Read more »
