The NYSED gave the city six months to finish looking into dozens of Charedi yeshivas.
According to the Daily News, Commissioner of Education Betty Rosa, who has long been critical of yeshivas, has given authorities until the end of June to make “specific determinations/recommendations” regarding the standard of secular education provided in the yeshivas.
The investigations started when Mayor Bill de Blasio was in office but are still ongoing.
The journal also mentioned a specific yeshiva in Williamsburg that was sued last summer by the leader of the anti-yeshiva organization YAFFED, which has pushed Albany to put strict regulations on yeshiva education.
Judge Adam Silverman of the Supreme Court commanded the education departments to wrap up their examinations of the yeshiva within a few months.
The yeshiva was deemed to conform with the state law’s need for “basically equivalent” academic requirements to public schools by the city.
On the other hand, the state argued that the city’s finding was unfounded and instructed local officials to work with the yeshiva to create a plan to adhere to state law.
