Satmar school seen cheating on exams for secular topics

The New York Daily News reported about a video taping at a Satmar school, where a teacher helped his students to cheat on an exam:
A teacher appeared to give a classroom of 5-year-old Hasidic children multiple answers to an English assessment exam administered at one of the city’s biggest yeshivas in Brooklyn in May 2014, a video obtained by the Daily News shows.

In the video, the teacher at Central United Talmudical Academy repeatedly points to the correct answers on the tiny Talmudic scholars’ test sheets and later instructs them where to circle. “Everyone should make a circle by the bench,” the instructor says in Yiddish.

[...] The school on Whyte Ave. in Williamsburg is one of the biggest yeshivas in the country. More than 4,000 students are taught inside 15 different buildings. Critics have complained for years about the lack of basic secular education being offered at many of the city’s yeshivas. Graduates at the private schools struggle to read and write in English, according to former pupils.

The alleged cheating is “despicable and infuriating,” said Naftuli Moster, who founded Young Advocates for Fair Education, a group advocating for yeshivas to meet secular standards required by state law.

“Imagine how parents must feel sending their kids to yeshivas to get a good education, only to find out later that their children were robbed of it?” he said.
The thing is, not all the parents may care. Those who willfully live on welfare and refuse to do any industrial work likely wouldn't care less what their children learn or not. But Moster is right about how reprehensible it is that the schools are running such dishonest conduct with education, and this should be dealt with by the city education system. Unfortunately, knowing how they're in the tank for the Satmar, that's why they probably won't.
