A week in, girls still not in school

With a week into the new school year there are still a number of girls that are not yet in high school. These girls are sitting at home waiting to be placed in a school that will best suit their needs. Askanim were hoping all girls would go to one  school that had room, but  its not an option for all of them. These girls are held hostage while power games are played, hopefully this will end soon and a solution found that will suit the needs of each bas yisrael.

  1. Please get your facts straight. Manyvof the girls sitting out were accepted to at least one other school beside the new school but are holding out for schools thst are overloaded.

    1. They are holding oout because the vaad just wants to dump them all in one classroonm where many of them dont belong. There is room to spread them among the other existing schools. Some who applied to 4 schools per the vaad recomendation were not accepted to any and the vaad simply wants to dump them in a different school.

  2. So you are saying that anybody that got into school but wants to hold out for a different school that is full has the right to say they have no school. If so we should close down all the smaller new schools and just firce the older big schools to take 45 to 50 in a class. Because every patent has the right to decide whichschool to get into. We shoyld also abolush entrance exams because a parent has the right to hold out for the school they want.

    1. Some girls did not get into any schools even though they applied to 4!!! and than the vaad just places them in school number 10. why go by the rules if the vaad wont honor it? The attitude of just dumping girls in a class full of rejects does not help the problem at all. If parents hold out that is their perogitive but to punish them for not following the vaad rules is WRONG!!!

  4. There are no 10 high schools in Lakewood. That is the problem. Instead of blogging and complaining about others why dont you raisemoney and make another sorely needed high school to alleviate the problem. We have a lot if girls elementary and guess what everybidy has a place. Make another 3 goid high schools and everybody will have a place.

    1. The problem is that there is no community schools, on the contrary we created a culture of exclusive schools therefore no one wants to go to a school with a bad name. Bais yaakov of Boro Park had chasidim klitvish sefardi all in one school no one cared. Once other smaller exclusive schools opened it takes away from a school with large healthy mix.

  6. There is no community school because the community doesnt suppirt the schools. It sends all our tzefokoh money out of town.

  7. The vaad is playing with peoples lives and trying to manipulate parents. The school owners are happy to have parents begging them to let them in. None of them seem to care or be cognizant that there are innocent 13 year old girls sitting at home feeling terribly rejected. Their kavod and power games are just more important to them. Everyone in town is wondering what the school owners tell Hashem on Yom Kippur. I am lishma? I really have the best intentions? If only these last parents would get the message that we are better then them and know better. We always know better.... What does the manipulating vaad say on Yom Kippur. Hashem I did it for you. These poor parents needed me to decide which school their kids should go to-- I really do know better....I really deserve to make these decisions.. I work so hard as an askan talking all summer to these desperate parents. I really do know better.

  9. So why dont the bloggers who so hate the schools and the terrible people running them make one good school with normal students and normalmechanchim and mechanchos. There must be hundreds of parents who would line up to send to the one school with normal not selfish mechanchim.The wsy yoy describe the existing schiols anything would be better than them and you would have hundreds of students in your first year.
