New York - Discrimination Claims Against East Ramapo School District Found Valid By U.S. DOE

East Ramapo, NY - Just two months after a monitor was put in place to examine charges of racial discrimination levied against the East Ramapo School District, the U.S. Department of Education has concluded that the charges are founded.

LOHUD.com (http://lohud.us/1kXNUpY) reports that as a result of the DOE’s findings, a monitor from the department’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR) will remain in place to oversee the implementation of a 12-step plan agreed to last month by East Ramapo officials.

The DOE halted its investigation based on East Ramapo’s willingness to enter into the 12-step plan agreement.

The OCR fired off a letter on Tuesday to NAACP President Willie Trotman assuring that its inquiry will be resumed if East Ramapo fails to comply with term of the agreement.

Yidden have always been at the forefront of fighting against discrimination it is a shame what is happening to these immigrants in Spring Valley, bec. the law says clearly it doesnt matter if they are here illegally they are entitled to a free and quality education regardless even if there is a hundred of them it is the job of the school board to come up with the money.

Illegal aliens aren't entitled to free anything, Lets see if it's your money paying $25,000 a year in taxes if you will say the same, Bleeding hearts are generous with other peoples money.

it was a decision of the supreme court in 1982 that said so in response to the Tyler Texas school district, so yes they are in fact ENTITLED and East Ramapo school district MUST provide it and any accompanyging ESL needs or translation services that the parents (regardless of immigration status) may request.

The law clearly requires the state to provide an education to all children.

"Illegal aliens aren't entitled to free anything" Ah, but you are so incorrect, sir...at least under law in The United States of America.

And so-called bleeding hearts (liberals) are as a group on a higher economic rung than are right wing conservatives. We're just less selfish, less callous...and more empathetic of those who are not in one's particular tribe.

Wrong. Illegal immigrants are people, too. You are as bad as the Nazis who considered us to be non-people.

I certainly understand your feelings.
But the law says that indeed, they are entitled.

Ramapo should just do the KJ route and make a separate district. If Ramapo was redistricted, the Jews would not be able to vote in school district elections

Why did the board send two hasidic special ed students to a school in Vermont at a cost of 130 thousand dollars per student? Aren't there good enough schools in NY? It's items like this that are discriminatory. Why does a handicapped student need to take ski lessons? How will that help him get a job? What about the 8 thousand dollar swing they bought for the hasidic kids? The public school kids never got a swing!

Why is this considered hate? Just because someone doesn't agree with you, don't pull the anti semite card. One does not have to live in Monsey to see that laws are broken by this board. Enough already!!! Every day there is an article in some newspaper about what the board is doing to poor kinder.

In Germany they had the Nuremburg laws they were laws, Some laws are immoral just like this law. If the Supreme court makes such laws let the Federal Government pay for it and not put extreme burdens on middle income people, This is why this country is on its way to become a third world country we already have a third world president.

You just affirmed my point that the bleeding heart liberals are generous with other peoples money and in the interim destroy the middle class who carry most of the burden to finance all their utopian rules and regulations. they are a pox on any free society.

Why do you lie and say it's not my money being taxed? I'm one of the few people who work and pay high property taxes. From your lack of proper punctuation and spelling, I assume you are uneducated and feel it's fine to not educate all people.

Fool, you missed the point - we're generous with our own money.

I bet you have no problem supporting subsidies for Yiddishe causes such as Torah institutions - or your own Medicare or Social Security when you become 65 - or rental subsidies for Yungeleit - or unemployment benefits for an unemployed Yid - you are just are a selfish tightwad when asked to carry your burden as a citizen to pay into the pot that supports public education or benefits for all those Goyim.
