A prominent girls school in Brooklyn is instituting some major changes this coming school year. The primary reason for this change is to save money. They intend to have all teachers, both the Hebrew teachers and English teachers, work from open to close. The only way this can happenis if half the classes have Hebrew in the morning and half the classes have English during the morning. The result will be that the primacy of Yiddish studies will be diluted.Now, I understand that we are living during difficult financial times, but are we to throw away all that we value for money?
