Hasidic students are being shortchanged

For far too long, officials in New York State have turned a blind eye to the failure of most yeshivas to provide their students with an adequate education (“It Is Long Past Time to Help New York’s Hasidic Children,” The New York Times, Sept. 18). So many graduates cannot speak English, and yet the schools continue to operate in defiance of state law.

Worse yet, few in high office in the state are willing to monitor and investigate yeshivas out of fear that they will lose the support of parents who vote as a bloc.  It’s a scandal, with far-reaching implications for the nation.
