Are Community Schools an Option?

Non-Orthodox day schools may be the right choice for some families, but your article “Community Day Schools: Are They an Option?” by Rachel Wizenfeld (winter 2013) understates how “diverse” some community schools really are. At some schools, for example, girls are invited to wrap tefillin in the morning, while boys are not expected to do so. Some classes are taught by openly homosexual teachers. Prospective parents will want to do their homework before making such an important decision.
