CON­CERN OVER PM’S YESHIVAH PLAN

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

PLANS TO register yeshivot and part­time re­li­gious schools have aroused con­cern among strictly Ortho­dox ed­u­ca­tors.

Prime Min­is­ter David Cameron high­lighted the scheme last week as a mea­sure to counter re­li­gious ex­trem­ism.

But the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Ortho­dox Jewish Schools (Na­jos) said it will voice its wor­ries at a meet­ing with the Depart­ment for Ed­u­ca­tion next week.

Na­jos ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Jonathan Rab­son said the or­gan­i­sa­tion was con­cerned that the Charedi schools and mos­dos [in­sti­tu­tions] were be­ing in­cluded in the sweep of in­sti­tu­tions that po­ten­tially “fill chil­dren’s hearts and heads with hate”.
