A group pushing for secular education in yeshivas is urging the city to speed a review of dozens of Orthodox yeshivas and expand the investigation further after the state Education Department released updated “substantial equivalency” guidelines last week. “We call on the Department of Education Chancellor Carranza to prioritize the inspections and the reviews of the ultra-Orthodox yeshivas that have stonewalled the education officials so far and to allow its investigation to expand to other yeshivas based on new and ongoing complaints,” Naftuli Moster, executive director of Young Advocates for a Fair Education (Yaffed) said during a press conference.
