Back to Hebrew School?

Hirhurim reports and comments on a (RATHER SHOCKING AND TROUBLING) proposal in Lawrence, NY, in which Orthodox students will attend a local yeshiva for Torah studies in the morning and then be bussed to a public school for secular studies. They will stay after school for an extra period of secular studies to make up for the missed morning. The students would be together in classes in a separate track from the rest of the public school due to their different schedule. If this passes all of the legal hurdles, it will significantly relieve the financial burden of tuition. Click here for more...

Why is it "shocking and troubling"?

Because such a system cannot possibly give the students anywhere near the level of Jewish education that they would get in a Jewish high school.
