If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Students should learn secular studies. If yeshiva were willing to actually work with the government to make this happen, there wouldn't be these draconian attempts to stop the out of control yeshivas.

The yeshivas are barely willing to teach 10-15 hours of secular studies in a week.

All of them, to various degrees.

False. They are not opposed per se, they are opposed the length of time that would be required daily/weekly.

Depends on the school and the grade.

Chassidishe schools don't teach boys much past like 5th grade, certainly not in high school.

Notice the letter doesn’t mention 7 hours anymore but 4.4.

Anything that will allow students to not be dependent upon the community.

This letter is geared towards the yeshiva community, not the chassidish

12 hours a week was plenty for me. My yeshiva was in the upper 90s percentile in NYS.

They care about the amount of time they will force us to teach these studies. They dont mind teaching Math, English, History and Science. They are opposed to some more extra curricular activities.

How much time is split between religious and non-religious studies?
