Bill passes for special monitor on Ramapo school board controlled by corrupt Haredis

NY lawmakers have approved a bill to monitor a school board in east Ramapo that's been abused by corrupt Haredis who've only used its funds to furnish their own yeshivas at the expense of black and Latino students who attend public schools. A sad note, however, is that some Republicans are making the serious mistake of opposing it:
After a three-hour heated debate, the state Assembly on Thursday approved a bill that would install a state monitor at the troubled East Ramapo school district.

But the vote didn't come easily, and it faces an even tougher fight in the Republican-controlled Senate with just days left in the legislative session.

The measure passed the Democratic-led Assembly, 80-56.

In a rare divide among Assembly Democrats, some members along with Republican legislators criticized the measure. They said it would usurp the power of the locally elected school board and set a dangerous precedent in New York.

"I think the real concern here is the voice of the people," said Assemblywoman Jane Corwin, R-Clarence, Erie County. "The whole idea of a board of education is to be elected by the people so the school district in the community is a reflection and is the response to what the people in the district want."
Ahem. The voice of the people in Ramapo was not heard by the Haredis running the board, who short-changed a lot of the non-Jewish residents, and come to think of it, the non-Haredi Jewish residents too. The Haredis even rolled out anti-semitism cards to cover for their wrongful activities, acting like they have every right to exploit taxpayers for their socialist lifestyle on welfare. And it's not wrong to monitor school boards any more than a political system to ensure that funds aren't being misused. The Republican assembly members would also do well to consider that the Haredis approach runs contrary to what I assume they stand for, and not go out of their way to defend a bunch of corrupt men who aren't helping Judaism's image one bit with their poor conduct.
