Yeshiva Parents to Dr. Wortham: Educate Every Child

On Nov. 2/16, Power of Ten in East Ramapo reported the following on the Oct. 26 ERCSD School Board meeting:

NY State law and the Commissioner of Education regulations make clear that the responsibility for compulsory education of minors is that of the Superintendent of Schools. On October 26th, Naftuli Moster, an advocate for parents of students in NYC and East Ramapo yeshivas, spoke at the school board meeting.  He officially put Dr. Wortham and the Board on notice that most yeshiva students in East Ramapo are not receiving a basic education as required by law.  Any parents concerned about this issues were invited to sign a letter to Dr. Wortham asking her to prevent scare education resources from flowing to institutions where education is not provided.
