Beatrice Weber describes the inadequate secular education being provided to thousands of children in New York City. As executive director of YAFFED, Ms Weber talks about her own experiences: her desire for an education, her case against a New York City school for failure to provide a secular education – which she won – and YAFFED’s mission to improve the quality of secular education in Hasidic and Haredi yeshivas.
