Naive Frum Jews Voted For the Dems and Get Kicked in the ASS!!!! New NYS Guidelines Require Yeshiva Elementary Schools to Teach AT LEAST 6 HOURS A DAY of Secular Studies

So where is Simcha Felder? HMMMMM???
Where is the Monroe Satmar Rebbe?????
Didn't they say that it's "Daas Torah" to vote for the Democrats???? Hmmmm???

The only way out is that all Yeshivois practice what the preach for Israel .....the Satmar SHIT" ........
"Stop taking $$$$$$$$ from the Medinah!!
If they stop taking federal and state funds.... and if they use their own transportation, then they can  continue making their children ignorant ... no problem ... 

Private and religious schools that don’t provide instruction substantially equivalent to New York state’s public schools will be threatened with loss of funding for textbooks, transportation and other services under new state Education Department rules released Tuesday.

The guidelines released Tuesday apply to all private schools but could have the greatest impact on ultra-Orthodox Jewish schools, called yeshivas, that critics have accused of providing little or no instruction in secular subjects like English and math.
“Although we are still reviewing NYSED’s guidelines, we have always believed that updated guidelines are an important step toward bringing about useful oversight of secular instruction at ultra-Orthodox yeshivas in New York,” said Naftuli Moster, the founder of Young Advocates for Fair Education, or YAFFED, a group that advocates for improved secular education at yeshivas.
The pro-yeshiva group Parents for Educational and Religious Liberty in Schools said it worries local school districts may use these guidelines “as license to intrude into the fundamental working and mission of religious schools.”
The group said in a statement, “Any attempt to impose uniformity on the almost 1,800 nonpublic schools in New York State, however well-intentioned, is only going to succeed if it appropriately accounts for the uniqueness of our schools and our educational system.”
Under the guidelines, staff members from local school districts will visit each nonpublic school once every five years and will determine whether the schools are providing enough instruction in required subjects including English, math, social studies and science.
A bill passed pushed through the state legislature last spring by state Sen. Simcha Felder, a Democrat who has caucused with Republicans, puts ultra-Orthodox yeshivas under the authority of the state rather than local education officials.
Yeshiva critics say the law waters down enforcement, but state Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia said local education officials will still be charged with visiting the schools that are subject to the so-called Felder amendment and will pass on their findings to the state.
Moster, whose group filed a federal lawsuit over the Felder amendment, said Tuesday’s announcement by the state Education Department won’t affect the lawsuit.
“While these revised guidelines do not address the unconstitutionality of the April 2018 Felder Amendment to the New York Compulsory Education Law, they are important to help continue the dialogue we must have to truly reform the system,” he said in a statement.
The initial round of school reviews will start in the 2018-2019 school year and will conclude by December 2020, Elisa said.
Schools that are flouting the state law requiring substantially equivalent instruction will be given a timeline to reach compliance, Elia said.
If a school is still not in compliance, government-funded services like textbooks and transportation could be withheld, and students would ultimately be directed to go to another school or be declared truant, Elia said.
The new state guidelines come as New York City officials have been bogged down in a protracted review of 30 yeshivas in the city. The city Department of Education says six high schools have refused to let its inspectors in.
Department spokesman Will Mantell said that in light of the new guidelines, city educators will prioritize visiting the schools that have blocked access and may make additional visits to the 24 schools that they have visited so far.
“We welcome the guidance and will work aggressively to implement it,” Mantell said.
Elia said “there obviously would be consequences” if schools don’t let local education officials in. “If access is not allowed, certainly a determination that a school is providing substantially equivalent instruction cannot be made,” she said.

Hold your horses, DIN.

How much do you want to bet that Cuomo & de Blasio are putting on a theater while being their usual arrogant, slimy, self-serving selves where Satmar may indeed have the last laugh after delivering their voter blocs?

Read the fine print.

Simcha Felder already enshrined in law through his Satmar-backed extortion that limudei koidesh can form a substantial basis of State mandated education.

For secular studies, the districts have 3 YEARS to formulate a plan how to evaluate.

When the time is up the districts will drag their feet which will take another year until the bureaucrats stop scratching their tuchesses.

Then the lawsuits will start because the districts are not getting any money for this process.

Another few years down the road, maybe money is allocated or maybe it isn't but the final decision is up to the Superintendents to decide. Don't forget that heimishe usually have control over them.

And if a district goes rogue at that point to push for an hour of English Lit. 101, then Satmar-Agudah will by-pass them in Albany.

By the way, City Journal columnist just thought of a hilarious nickname for de Blasio whose birth name is Wilhelm. He calls him "Kaiser Wilhelm".

It's just terrible that the kids might actually learn something so they can support themselves and their large families, instead of living off welfare, WIC, and shnorring from door to door.

Don't worry, the laws won't be enforced and the kids can remain blissfully ignorant.
