    NEW YORK — A pivotal vote wil be held in New York State this Monday that will heavily affect how much oversight the government will have over Yeshivos.

    The vote, held by the New York State Board of Regents will decide if the government can reject a private school’s secular studies curriculum. If approved, the regulations would require that Yeshivos either have an approved Regents program, or be subject to a review by the local school authority.

    “We are at a milestone in terms of what has been a lengthy process, working with stakeholders and working with local school authorities to come up with a framework that will enable non-public schools to demonstrate that they are providing substantially equivalent instruction as is required by New York State law,” said Senior Deputy Education Commissioner Jim Baldwin to Orthodox media outlets during a Friday Zoom call.

    Over 350,000 comments were submitted to the government during a 60-day public comment period, after an initial draft of the proposed regulations was originally released in March. Most of the comments opposed state regulation of private schools from a philosophical standpoint, according to officials.

    Nevertheless, the State intends to proceed with the vote on Monday.

    A complete copy of the proposed regulations is available here.
