Mild anti-semitism aside, that was bizarre. Not surprised though
Bizarre maybe to you. What do you know of lakwood?

That's a problem that everyone has when leaving his circle he grew up at.

It's worse the more "religious" you are.

Actually even that isn't 100 percent true always.

Chassidish kids tend to get kicked out and less accepted more than say a sephardi kid who also leaves.

Meanwhile that's in regards more to those that live religion altogether.

I'm speaking of those who may want to do things a shtickle different well within what halacha allows.

Take yourself as an example, do you think everyone wants their kids to be exposed to your type of family (for the good and the bad)!
Even in your CLE, you have 3 types/levels of schools. Watch CLE grow and it will get more and more refined schools.

We can argue the benefit of ALL kids in the same school but will have a hard time drawing the line.
Keep your NY stuff in NY please. People here don't deal in that nonsense.

Has nothing to do with NY or CLE has all to do with the size of community and luxury to pick and choose.

For eg? Monsey maybe. Otherwise the modern orthodox ones are usually very restrictive and unaccepting of chassidim or yeshivish.
That leaves us with out of town and Israel...

OK. So even in your skewed worldview, we have Monsey, Out of Town and Israel. Totally. Israel is just a tiny little place anyway so we won't count them. And out of town...another small insignificant place, right?

Probably more than you considering that even your logical comments are often contradictory

That was condescending. I think people wouldn't want their kids to be exposed to your type of family so they don't learn bad middos.

I definitely dont want my kid coming home and asking to go to MLE or BOB for a shabbos vacation just like a kid in class went. And wants to go upstairs on a 747, and sit in the cockpit.
