On July 15, Oscar Cohen, Education Chairman of the Spring Valley NAACP, wrote the following:
Naftuli Moster, executive director of Young Advocates for Fair Education (YAFFED), http://yaffed.org/# has personally experienced the deprivation of the lack of secular education in ultra-Orthodox yeshivas.
YAFFED mission is to advocate for the inclusion of English, math, social studies, science, etc. in every child’s day, as prescribed by New York State Law, in addition to religious studies. Depriving children of these subjects is tantamount to withholding their right to educational opportunities.
Please click on the following link and consider signing the petition, and sharing it with those who may wish to advocate for children to receive a rounded ‘sound basic education’ as prescribed by New York State law.
