Some yeshivas not providing basic education
From CBS 2:
Mayor Bill de Blasio admitted Monday night that some yeshiva students are not being taught the basics.
But how soon Hizzoner will fix the problem remains to be seen. CBS2 Political Reporter Marcia Kramer was demanding answers Monday.
“The issue must be resolved,” de Blasio said.
De Blasio was talking about charges of poor education at some yeshivas, and a complaint filed against the city to force the schools to comply with a state law that non-public schools provide education “substantially equivalent” to public schools.
The mayor’s comments were an admission that the problem exists, Kramer reported.
“There’s a full investigation going on,” de Blasio said, “and there’s a series of discussions going on with yeshivas to address that problem. It will be resolved.”
There was no indication when things would change.
