Notice the letter doesn’t mention 7 hours anymore but 4.4.
7 hours was never real. It was a miscalculation of the number of credits needed per year vs. over a period of several years.

Here comes everyone showing off the chips on their shoulders....
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

How much time is split between religious and non-religious studies?
4/3

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

I assume you are referring to the NYS Regents. What are the stats for Satmar boys?

Yup all the kids that were forced to carry in the kiddush levana cards and now years later hate the yeshivish world.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

False. They are not opposed per se, they are opposed the length of time that would be required daily/weekly.
+1! People are going to hate over here. But even Christian private schools are angry about these laws

In public, there has no been a good faith effort to actually work on the length. Sure, if we're talking 4.5 vs. 3, that's fair. But the community isn't even publicly behind that.

It was actually a very direct response to this.
Anything that will allow students to not be dependent upon the community.
and not in the slightest bit ad hominem

Why would they. That would make the breakup from 4/3 to 2.5/4.5 which is a significant difference.

Because once they are "in" they can start imposing exactly what can be taught etc.
