Students for Educational Equity in Private Schools Info Session
October 29, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Did you know that in New York State today, tens of thousands of children are being denied a basic education?
In 2020, the average Hasidic boy receives only 90 minutes of secular instruction a day, and only four days a week. Once he turns 13, he will receive zero instruction in secular subjects ever again. This is happening every day to students your age living just a subway ride away.
Furthermore, did you know that many non-Hasidic private schools, including Packer and Heschel, have lobbied to allow the status quo to continue?
Join SEEPS and Yaffed for an after school virtual info session on 10/29 at 5:45 pm to learn more about this issue and how you can help end ongoing educational neglect in our city and state from those who have experienced it firsthand.
This event is sponsored by SEEPS and hosted by Julian Hartman-Sigall (Packer student) in conversation with YAFFED’s Executive Director, Naftuli Moster- featuring Hasidic yeshiva graduates and current college students Chaim “Jay” Fishman (UPenn) and Adelle Goldenberg (Harvard).
