Failed by schools

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment&analysis -

Par­ents who send their sons and daugh­ters to Jewish pri­mary schools have ev­ery rea­son to ex­pect that it is not a one-way com­mit­ment. Yet as we re­port this week, chil­dren who at­tended United Syn­a­gogue schools have been forced to con­tinue their ed­u­ca­tion at sec­u­lar com­pre­hen­sives af­ter be­ing de­nied places at JFS and other Jewish secondary schools. In the event, the open­ing of a cross-com­mu­nal secondary school, JCoSS, in Bar­net in 2010 should cre­ate suf­fi­cient places to en­sure against rep­e­ti­tion of the prob­lem. But that will be scant con­so­la­tion for those who feel that the sys­tem has failed them so mis­er­ably this year.
