  1. $22,366.00 per child?!
    Bet yet, we Yeshiva parents don’t get a red cent from the corrupt State. We are saving the State millions upon millions of dollars, and gornisht? No vouchers? Nothing? What happened to all of Governor Cuomo’s promises? Why are we taxed for?

    • busing? do Yeshivas have a selective policy towards admissions? public schools do not! you want to save money send to public school!

      • Good point. No more Yeshiva for my kids. I’m yanking them out and putting them in public school with the Russians and Pakistanis. Thanx for the advice.
