Jewish Education Proposal: More Updates

Steven I. Weiss has yet more information regarding the new proposal for Jewish education I first wrote about here and here. (Do you ever sleep, Steven?) Apparently, the original proposal has been revised after community Rabbis urged those spearheading the effort to consult and collaborate with the private schools before creating this program. The resulting proposal solves some of the problems I had with the original program, though not all. These changes, though, could result in a much larger pool of interested parents. If they can make this happen, it has a much better chance in it's new incarnation of drawing a significant number of students away from the Yeshivas. I still cannot wholeheartedly endorse this proposal, however. I would prefer to see some of these creative thinkers putting their energies towards working on a way to make tuition more manageable while still keeping Jewish kids in a Yeshiva environment.
I will be following these developments closely.

As for my own view, I can only second Gil's comments on the original post:

I am still having trouble believing that this is anything more than a ploy to put pressure on the local yeshivas.
