Forget busing, 3 kids still not accepted to school

We hoped and thought this year would be different. As the busing issue dominates the conversation the  wishful thinking was the issue if not getting into School in Lakewood was a thing of the past. Unfortunately a week before Rosh hashna there are  3 kids still not in school.  There as at least one primary boy and one primary aged girl out of school and at least one high school girl. No matter what spin and excuse or blame goes around the bottom line is 3 children are sitting home. This is not how we want to approach the Yom Hadin asking for selicha while this goes on. Please If anyone has influence to settle this fast.  TY.

  1. Next year it will be more as no one will apply to the new schools because they don't have busing

    2. Also imagine you are a new school owner besides for the headache of taking care of a school. In order to keep up with the big guys you have to deal with getting your own busing and subsidizing it.

  2. I thought I had influence. I tried reasoning with the parents to go to the 2 good schools they were accepted to ,but they want to hold out for the one school that is full. Its their choice.

    1. Go ahead blame the parents to cover up for the incompetent vaad that places kids in schools that are a total misfit for these children. Its putting a square peg in a round hole as long as men ken zich upateren and tell rechnitz you placed all the kids.

    2. i don't know these particular cases. But their are plenty of people who are delusional when they apply for schools. They only apply to the most full schools.

      When they realize too late that they aren't getting in, then try to apply to other schools. Don't be surprised if schools you weren't interested in, aren't interested in accepting you later on.

  3. Disgusting that the poop publicly shamed those parents on advice of some asskans

    1. i don't think this is the same parents. the scoop said those parents do not live in lakewood.
      also, if they really don't live in lakewood and did what the scoop says they did than they deserve to be shamed for playing games with their child's life. the real victim is the daughter.

    2. The poop will pull the story. There is no toeles for planting that story assuming it's true. It was most probably sent by a young ask an on the vaad to make them look good. Dumb mistake that will backfire.

  5. It's actually more than 3 kids and they are not out of towners these parents have been living in Lakewood since they were married. That story on the poop is a deflection and has no credibility.

  6. Story happened with the chasidish schools its a different mentality and mindset the sought after schools are very small and packed.

  7. When schools,menahilim (and parents) start using children as bargaining chips, when Kovod, and money is more important than protecting the best interests of our children, we can finally realize that we have sunk to the lowest level possible. When we use yiddishkeit as a weapon, we will be reminded of what is truly important. Unfortunately, the way we get reminded historically has always been quite unpleasant.

    1. okaaay. but none of that applies here. (except maybe to the parents in the scoop story - if it's true - and to the man who thought his money made him a dayos zugger about education.)

    2. Harold I agree 100%. Much more important things in life than money and where children go to school.

  8. I think we are getting reminded as we speak, it is only a matter of time till some anti lkwd (frum) legislation gets enacted.

    1. All the larger more established schools got first dibs on busing leaving no buses for the smaller/newer schools.
