We treat our rabbeim like second-class citizens, then complain that our kids, seeing our treatment of them despite the lip service we give to teaching, go off the derech or become indifferent.
I have known many fine people in chinuch – people who have trouble paying bills, people who have trouble finding shidduchim for their daughters because they have no money to offer for support – yet are moser nefesh every day for their students.
This is a scandal for our community.
On the other hand, we have many, many parents who can’t afford even partial yeshiva tuition.
Chinuch is the greatest crisis we face. Where are the solutions? With all the conventions, conferences, meetings, boards, organizations and undertakings, why are we making no progress in this regard?
