Is it the norm for the schools to charge $$ for kindergarten graduation fee?

A big part of the problem is also that schools are top heavy. An administrator for this an administrator for that.
When I was in school you had a Principal, Asst. Principal, and Secretary and we made it through just fine

Who was in charge of paying salaries?

Very good op-ed on the tuition crisis.

http://jstandard.com/content/item/putting_our_money_where_our_mouths_are/28821



It's such a no-brainer in my mind. Not to say that it'll be easy to implement properly, but it solves so many major issues. The tax issue is a big one IMO that it would solve, and it would also mean that you can give maaser to the scholarship organization according to all poskim (as opposed to when that money is included in tuition - which is not something universally agreed upon among the poskim).



And yet the op-ed is old and this is the first I've ever heard of it.
Though this is an issue I'd champion more than improving KSMLs.

Did you ever push for this in Cleveland?

Gur is making now a campaign parents should pay there balance of last 2 years, theyre expecting to bring in over million dollars if successful, and I think the average tuition peer child is ~300 per month

Tuition rates is like cc processing fees you keep your mouth shut you'll pay a price.

Can someone create a spreadsheet of all schools/yeshivas in NYC area, no becuase it boils down to how much you kvetch and your name.
There's no real data of average tuition parents pay
