3) Last Chance to Submit a Public Comment

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has released new proposed substantial equivalency regulations for non-public schools. Once passed, these regulations will serve as a crucial mechanism to ensure that the tens of thousands of school children attending ultra-Orthodox yeshivas in East Ramapo and across New York are receiving the basic English, math, science, and social studies education to which they are entitled by state law.

The proposed regulations are now open to the public for comment, but the deadline is TODAY!
