I think Sara Shnirer and Rebbetzin Kaplan would be turning over in their graves if they would know what became of the Bais Yaakov system today.


I second this.

I think a lot of OOT community schools very very rarely expel. In town there’s more of a mindset of why should you come to MY school? Make it someone else’s problem.

Besides the expelling, theyd CRY BITTER TEARS about kids being out of school for a year or more, with no school.

While the Klal has money for everything else, theres no money to expand schools so that all girls have a school, at all times.

It is actually quite rare for a student to be expelled nowadays as well.


As a former Bais Yaakov student (not this particular one, but another highly regarded institution) who was expelled, I beg to differ. I was told I had to leave without ceremony and without valid reasons. The principal (who was, at that point quite elderly, and there mostly as a figurehead) of said school decided I was a 'bad influence' (on whom, and for what?), and no amount of intervention by other staff members would change this person's mind. There was no other school for me where I lived, and I had to go to school out of town. It completely changed my life. BH I feel like I turned out ok, but I wonder how different my life would have been if I had stayed in that school, living in my own home. It was truly a nightmare for my parents (who were one of the founding families, and who had previously enjoyed a good relationship with the principal and the school).
At this point in my life I've come to realize that this person was just a shaliach, and that for whatever reason that was the path I was supposed to take.

I was only thirteen when Rebbitzen Kaplan died so I wasn't in BYHS under her although my older sisters were. I don't remember her on a personal level but let me say this:

I remember the way things were like when she was alive. The type of people who always have complains and criticisms about schools today had plenty of complaints and criticisms about Bais Yaakov when she alive too.

I also remember hearing (possibly incorrectly) that she did not feel obligated to accept girls who had no school if the girls lived out of Boro Park saying that such girls are the responsibility of the schools more local to them.

Your attitude and acceptance in this post is so amazing. I can't imagine being tested this way.

I was in BYHS in the late 80s and we had girls who were asked not to return the following year. Is that different than expulsion?
