Two New York State investigations and multiple investigative media reports have shown the haredi-controlled East Ramapo school district is appallingly run and that mismanagement is destroying the education of the district's public school students, most of whom are non-Jewish minorities. But top Rockland County politician Aaron Weider says there's a war on haredi children and the haredi community, and has called on haredim to join together to stop the recommendations of latest state investigative report from being implemented.

Dear Monsey resident.
Our Community is under attack. Your daily life hasn’t been noticeably impacted, but that is very likely to change.
Yesterday, your children were attacked. Let me explain. Dennis Wolcott, the monitor who was appointed by the NYS education department, for the East Ramapo School district found no criminal wrongdoing whatsoever. He actually praised the current board and its President Mr. Weissmandel. Yet, he inexplicably called for a monitor with veto power! The bogus reason he gave is that we don’t know who the next school board will be. This is totally unacceptable and we can no longer remain silent. He has suggested taking away many of the programs that are currently mandated for private schools by NYS…including severely impacting transportation to private schools!!
The current board who are working L’shem Shomyim L’maan Haklal need your support. Please come out tonight to show your support at Ramapo High School on Viola Rd. 7:30 P.m..
Rockland County Legislator Aron B. Wieder (D- District 13)
