New York approves private school legislation as yeshivas are scrutinized.

Must Read

Despite public support, a survey found substandard instruction in certain Brooklyn yeshivas.

After concerns that certain Hasidic yeshivas didn’t teach mathematics, history, and English, New York state education officials required private institutions to do so.

This comes in response to the allegations that some Hasidic yeshivas did not provide their students with a foundational education.

The Board of Regents, which sets policy for the state Department of Education, unanimously approved the guidelines on Tuesday.

The New York Times’ reportage on Hasidic yeshivas in Brooklyn and the Hudson Valley created new criteria for what constitutes a “essentially equal” public school curriculum.

According to a Sunday newspaper report, few of the 1,000 pupils in a single Williamsburg yeshiva passed the 2019 state math or reading tests.

It was determined that the paper included allegations that professors had mistreated kids and had failed to give an adequate amount of secular instruction.

According to the findings of the investigation, Hasidic boys’ schools have been given more than one billion dollars in public funding over the course of the previous four years.

In 2015, the state education administration created additional criteria in response to reports that more than a dozen urban yeshivas did not meet requirements.

Only two of the city’s 28 yeshivas provide “basically equivalent” instruction to public schools, the city’s education department said in 2019.
