BENEFITING: YAFFED INC
We believe that all kids, regardless of their or their parents' religion, deserve an elementary and high school education that is sufficient in preparing them for the world they will be joining as adults. And the law believes that as well.
New York State laws are in place that require even non-public schools to provide an education that is "substantially equivalent" to that of non-public schools. The same laws also require that the Dept of Education enforce them and that they ensure that every child receives a proper education.
However, at this very moment, there are approximately 30,000+ boys in NY who are being deprived of the most basic education. No science, no history, no geography, no music, art, health, computer, etc. Only some basic English and math are taught to boys up until they turn 12-13 at which point they get cut off completely.
When we informed the Dept of Education of this, they had known it already, but they didn't take any action then and they are not taking any action now, leaving the helpless kids watching as their future is being robbed away from them before their eyes.
We know one thing that will get the Dept of Education to do their job: a LAWSUIT! If it costs them enough money and bad press, we can be sure they'll do their job properly.
