I hate when people quote huge messages and then take them apart. My op wasn't a cry for help or ideas how to fit into a school that didn't want me/where I didn't belong. It was commiseration.
Sorry, wasn't paying enough attention http://www.marsvenus.com/p/men-are-from-mars-women-are-from-venus-hardcover
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

You do not want to go into the yomim noraim like that.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Good point. But never judge the hurt; their shoes are not your size.

Nobody judges, Read through all the posts here everyone trying not to judge and white glove, But by writing names on a forum of ppl to go to hell, Bashing schools etc. i think its fair enough if someone wants to defend the schools he should be allowed to

And to be quite honest i'm on the other side of the coin, I'm personally involved on a day to day basis fighting with "menahlim" from yeshivas to except bucherem that we're kicked out from yeshiva or don't have one yet, The hard part isn't convincing the rosh yeshiva or menahal etc. to except the bucher under terms its making sure the bucher is serious about excepting and keeping up with the terms

For all those looking for reasons why even filtered internet can be quite a problem, this thread is a great example.
Straight up lashon hara ( or maybe even Motzi Shem Ra ) at its finest.
Life is as good as you make it...

What does that mean to you?
So it seems like רבן גמליאל would have accepted your husband, and not those many people (https://he.wikisource.org/wiki/%D7%91%D7%A8%D7%9B%D7%95%D7%AA_%D7%9B%D7%97_%D7%90) but the schools seem to insist on not standing up to רבן גמליאל's standard (as the sages in his time didn't).
Why is this a problem? This seems like an academic standard. Not all 4 year olds are ready at the same time, some kids need more time at home.
I have verified this with a friend of mine who used to work in G.Y. administration. IMHO Rabbi Ginsberg would have a tough time explaining how his policy is congruent with the Rebbe's directives as per this (which I just saw this week in a publication I believe Rabbi Ginsberg probably reads):

Is this an issue for you? I try to avoid labeling any one, but you self-identified as Chassidish, wouldn't that mean strictly Cholov Yisroel?

I am not rushing to judge, but this reminds me of a place I worked at a while ago. Two people were about to be let go. One person was called in to the manager, and told that he is being terminated. He left without saying a word. The other was told the same thing, but tried putting up an argument, that argument showed the manager that the person was at least somewhat motivated, and the person was not terminated at that time.

Without rushing to judge, did you try to put up a fight at any of these? Some of the arguments are very weak. However one has to understand the constant challenge that administrators have, they have to control the gates to a certain extent in order to maintain their school. However, of the entire list (and those that are not there) I find it hard to believe that not one school would have accepted if you would have tried putting up an argument, committing to a certain PERSONAL change in the direction required, etc. etc.

Very very easy to see that you don't live in BP

Just going to put this out there. This guy is a yeshivish guy who was being cute how every yeshiva advertises with flowery terms how your child can reach his potential and don't mention who they are carrying for. Fact is that mainstream yeshivos (for good or for bad) don't cater to these kids. It's a BM program not a high school. He's trying to create an alternate serious learning program based on covering ground as opposed to learning so much biiyun which does not exist.
