page 82. It's a well written article. It's not about secular education but government bureaucrats telling us how to educate our children. Even when paying through the roof for private schools in order to avoid the disaster that NYC schools have become.

We win. At least for now.

That's a win?  Look to me like temporary reprieve.

The TL;DR, IMHO - wow, a lot of people have issues with this, we need to think a little more before we can implement anything.

IMHO - wow, an order of magnitude more comments than ever before, the optics of ignoring completely are really bad and don't bode well for our political future, let's pretend to take it seriously.

How are these different?
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

I thought @Yonah 's summary gave the impression of genuine care and concern.

Please find me a genuine politician - there aren't too many, and most are on a local level.

This is a situation where the BOE is getting it on both sides - Lawsuits on the one hand from Organizations like YAFFED, and comments on the other hand from nearly every private school demographic.

I honestly don't think that this is over, but I think that they will come back in 6 months time with either:
a) Reduced guidelines based on time of instruction
or
b) A Requirement to show proficiency - i.e. pass a test

I'm thinking more likely #b - which doesn't really impact the yeshivas that are already administering Regents tests.

A judge ruled that YAFFED has no standing to sue.

CMIIW but I'm pretty sure all yeshiva students (K-8) already have a state test.
