This Public School District Was Taken Over by Ultra-Orthodox Jewish Men and Then All Hell Broke Loose

I’m late to this one, but I finally had the chance to listen to a recent episode of This American Life which documents the true story of how a group of ultra-orthodox Jews took over a public school district in East Ramapo, New York.

The gist of the story is that the Jews were upset about having to pay property taxes that went to the public schools since their children didn’t even attend them. They launched a successful campaign to become the majority seat-holders on the school board in order to revise future budgets… and what transpired after that is just ridiculous.

It’s an incredible story. I hope you get a chance to listen to it.
