Trouble at Ultra-Orthodox Jewish Schools in Brooklyn

Patch reports that a city probe has been launched into the educational programs at 38 ultra-Orthodox Jewish boys’ schools (yeshivas) in Brooklyn, and one in Queens.

Although the yeshivas are privately run and funded, many receive public funds for buses, books, food, etc., and are required to provide an education of similar quality to public schools.

The Brooklyn yeshivas — mostly located in Borough Park and Williamsburg, with a few in Crown Heights and one in Flatbush — aren’t even coming close, the complaint says.
