Satmar Rebbe slams NYC investigation into Yeshivas secular education standards

Pray for us!
That’s the message a leading Hasidic rabbi gave to his thousands of followers in response to the city Education Department’s investigation into its schools failing to teach secular subjects as required by law.
“These are bad times for us Jews,” said Satmar leader Aaron Teitelbaum during a May 4 speech. “We need to pray to God that (city officials) should not interfere with the upbringing of our children.”
“Worthless ... snitches” in the community are urging the Education Department to take action “which the government doesn’t even want,” the rabbi said at a large synagogue in upstate Kiryas Joel.
“This speech is concerning in many ways,” said Naftuli Moster, who founded Young Advocates for Fair Education, a group advocating for yeshivas to meet secular standards required by state law.
“Most concerning is the apparent collusion between community leaders and the (department) which might explain why the city investigation stalled early on,” he added.
The Teitelbaum address was transcribed and distributed to followers living in different areas.
The Hasidic leader also says the city has long ignored the state law regarding secular education.
“To put it bluntly, they simply turned a blind eye to what was going on by the Jewish children,” Teitelbaum said. “They didn’t want to look.”
City authorities say the review is active.
“We take this matter very seriously,” said Education Department spokeswoman Toya Holness.

Jewish Education - Secular Education ...
The Charedi-Chassidic institutions have no education(.)
They are producing Amei-HaAratzim
A person may think that in lieu of not teaching basic english &
arithmetic you are producing great Lomdim & Poskim as an ersatz.
Nothing is taught. Time is wasted.
No Hebrew - No English -
You are left with a mere Gypsy style yiddish with a meager 200 word
vocabulary laced with a heavy Transylvanian-Dracula accent talking
like the rappers in the street foaming at their mouth.

Vote against tax increases next week

Even this pro-Preserve Ramapo newspaper admits taxes are way too high


The New York City suburbs pay the highest taxes in the nation. Upstate, residents pay the highest taxes compared to home values. As voters go to the polls Tuesday to vote on their school budgets, the frustration is palpable across the state.

And school taxes represent about 60 percent of a homeowner’s bill.

“I have friends who retired to Arizona and one of the reasons they cited was the taxes,” said John Rea, 62, of Pearl River. “Another friend moved to South Carolina and said the same thing​. But, if you want to live here, you live in a place with high taxes.”

I'M OUTTA HERE: New Yorkers flee high taxes

This year’s budget vote comes amid a confluence of factors:

New York has the highest out-migration rate of residents in the nation, a review by Gannett found.

New York spends the most per pupil in the nation on its schools: $19,818 per student, or 85 percent above the national average, U.S. Census data show.

School aid is set to hit $24.8 billion for the school year that starts July 1, a 6.5 percent increase.

Since the 2011-12 school year, school spending by the state has increased nearly 27 percent — up from $19.6 billion, records show.

New York's tax burden of nearly 13 percent of average household income is the highest in the nation, according to the Tax Foundation, a fiscally conservative Washington group.

“I don’t think there’s a person who would say the taxes are not too high. It’s a consensus here," said Keith Gellman, 55, of Scarsdale. “But you get used to it. You can’t afford to hang here unless you make a significant income. You never could or, at least in the last decade or two.”
