NEW YORK (VINnews) — Last week, Professor Aaron Twerski sent a harshly written to the New York State Dept. of Education, decrying their attempts to attack the Yeshiva system.
In his letter, Twerski says that he has over 100 descendants that went through the Yeshiva system. He questions why the State feels they have a right to make the decision how to educate them, when it is clearly the right of the parent.
Furthermore, Twerski points to the tremendous success products of the Yeshiva system have been shown to have, whether in business or life in general.
Lastly, he bashes the State’s notion that a Yeshiva education isn’t “equivalent” to a public school education, when in fact he says the “intellectual rigor” of Talmudic studies far exceeds what students typically experience in public school.
