Government Begins Intense Inspections of Local Yeshivos on Heels of Regulations Rollout

Government Begins Intense Inspections of Local Yeshivos on Heels of Regulations Rollout

By: Yehuda Alter

A letter from the State Education Department to a local Brooklyn Yeshiva, as reported by Yeshiva World News, gives insight into what the new reality may look like for our local Yeshivos, R”l. 

In the letter—issued even before the regulations have been formally adopted—the Department of Education requests a follow-up visit to collect details on the curriculum and on precise hours allocated to these studies. They also request the accountability on the minute details of the curriculum in the area of “physical education,” which includes instruction regarding “alcohol, drugs, and tobacco use,” among many others.

When the regulations are adopted, activists believe that similar actions will be taken on a far broader scope, affecting the majority of yeshivos in Brooklyn.  

A harsh reminder of the stakes in this matter is a previous story which Boropark24 reported  in which parents sending their children to yeshivos that don’t comply with the government’s demands can be jailed for truancy.
