Taxpayer funding for religious schools that teach only religion.

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2018/04/05/ultra-orthodox-jewish-schools-in-nyc-keep-failing-and-things-just-got-worse/

This is stunning.  These schools receive … “hundreds of millions of dollars in government funding, in part through federal programs like Title 1 and Head Start.”   They leave kids unable to read, do math, speak english, basicly unable to function in anything but their ultra religious societies.  It is horrible.

A yeshiva graduate, Moster got serious about raising educational quality for Jewish kids when he went to a secular college and realized to his embarrassment that he was unfamiliar with all sorts of concepts that other students had no problem with. For instance, he’d never heard the word “molecule,” nor did he possess any concept of the word’s meaning. For a long time, he considered himself “too crippled to make it through.”

 

At the 39 [worst] yeshivas [in New York City], children ages 7 to 13 receive only an hour and a half of English and math instruction combined four days per week. Other secular subjects are not taught at all, and English instruction for boys stops at age 13, the letter states. (Most Hasidic Jews speak Yiddish at home, and nearly a third of students in Jewish schools in New York City speak limited English, according to the Department of Education.)

 

He describes how a physician he knows in Borough Park in Brooklyn, a heavily Hasidic neighborhood,

… often sees adult male patients who can barely communicate to her what ails them. “It’s not just that they’re like immigrants, barely able to speak the language,” she told me. “It’s also a lack of knowledge of basic physiology. They can barely name their own body parts.”
