RAMAPO, N.Y. – A number of ultra-Orthodox Jewish leaders are banding together to fight a state panel’s recommendation that a monitor with veto power oversee the troubled East Ramapo Board of Education, according to a report on Lohud.com.
The media outlet had previously reported that the leaders had accused the state Education Department and Dennis Walcott, a former New York City chancellor who is leading the three-person monitoring team, of “stabbing the religious community in the back.”
Several groups opposing the request for such oversight have sprung up in Rockland County, Lohud reported.
