On the heels of the NY abortion law recently enacted, the following report even more demonstrates the escalation of the attempts to destroy religious and personal freedom by the anti-American leftist groups operating under the Democrat Party umbrella led by the absurd Andrew Cuomo. These two actions alone are so alien to the principles and policies that have prevailed throughout USA history that they clarify even further the reality that our country is in the throes of a fight that will be won or lost where freedom will either prevail or be suppressed by the agendas of communists, socialists and globalists disguised as traditional Democrats.
Note also in the New York dictate that History is not mentioned and effectively replaced by Social Studies.
New York State has opened to the door to a war on religious education. New guidelines from the state’s Department of Education are framed as applying to all "religious and independent schools” in New York, but no one is fooled. The changes are aimed right at New York City’s freewheeling Orthodox Jewish seminaries, known as yeshivas. More than 100,000 students attend yeshivas in New York City.

New York’s War on Religious Education
New York State has opened to the door to a war on religious education. New guidelinesfrom the state’s Department of Education are framed as applying to all "religious and independent schools” in New York, but no one is fooled. The changes are aimed right at New York City’s freewheeling Orthodox Jewish seminaries, known as yeshivas. More than 100,000 students attend yeshivas in New York City.
The new guidelines revisit the "substantial equivalency” statute that has kept the peace in New York schools since 1897. Non-public schools can educate their students as they see fit, provided the education is "substantially equivalent” to public schools. The new guidelines change the equation. Math must be taught every day. English, science and social studies must be taught. Schools must provide samples of teaching schedules, textbooks and lesson plans. Non-compliant schools risk withdrawal of funding for things like textbooks and transportation, and students ultimately could be forced to go to another school. Students that resist transfer risk being declared "truant” and legal steps to challenge parental competency could follow. The new mandates will be enforced by inspections from local school district officials.
The guidelines, wrote two Orthodox educatorsin the Wall Street Journal, are a shocking power grab by secular forces. They "empower local school boards to evaluate private schools and to vote on our right to continue educating our students.” The new curriculum requirements demand "so much time that it crowds out Torah study, our sacred mission.”
The controversy began when dissident former yeshiva students startedraising concernsabout the quality of their education. Members of the Orthodox community concede that some yeshivas need improvement. But when you’vebeen in business for 1,500 years, give or take a few centuries, change comes slow. And as history as shown, it’s a very bad idea to tell a Jew how to run his religion.
New Yorkers of all stripes were quick to recognize the threat to religious freedom. Ed Mechmann, director of public policy at the Catholic Archdiocese of New York,wrotethat the new regulations would "give local school boards virtually unlimited power over private religious schools. There is no protection against government officials who are hostile to religious schools or who just want to eliminate the competition.”
A majority of the New York City Council–not a group known for its theological fervor–complained in aletterto the state Education Department about the "unprecedented incursion into private schools’ curricula” and warned it to refrain "from threatening to remove student-based funding from schools that do not acquiesce to these guidelines.”
In New York City, the Orthodox community is a powerful political force, often delivering critical votes in closely fought elections. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio opened a probe in 2015 following complaints about sub-standard education from the yeshiva dissidents. But the investigation went nowhere. De Blasio’s own investigations commissioner, Mark Peters,looked intothe controversy, only to befired laterby the mayor.
The new guidelines put the mayor back in the yeshiva hot seat and could revive the dormant investigation. They seem sure to ignite more controversy. School inspections are slated to begin in February. The yeshiva establishment says they won’t cooperate with inspectors, ditto from New York’s Catholic school leadership. That’s going to be a big problem.
New York City Schools Chancellor Richard Carranzatold the New York Timeshe’s starting the inspections with yeshivas that have barred city officials or have been noted in complaints about poor education standards. Carranza said the de Blasio administration intends to "move aggressively and get this taken care of.”
Don’t bet on it.
