No, yeshiva tuition is too high for the average family and every year it seems to grow more and more. This expense can take up half if not more of the family budget. We need to have more fundraisers to help parents and schools lower the cost.

No, I have four kids and they currently go to public school because, among other reasons, I can’t afford the high cost of yeshiva tuition. The price needs to be lowered if they want to encourage people to stay religious and be part of the community. I recall when we were kids my parents wanted to enroll us in a yeshiva high school but my father got sick and my mother couldn’t afford to do it on her own. The school did nothing to help her meet the cost and we ended up going to public school.

Yes, examine how much yeshivas cost compared to secular private schools and you’ll find that yeshivas are less expensive. People need to understand that milamdim need to get paid too. As for alleviating financial pressure on parents, dinners and fundraisers won’t cover the cost; instead, schools need to seriously look at how much the executives and management are getting paid.

Yes, I don’t think yeshiva tuition is overly inflated. Parents need to take into consideration that we’re paying for more than one curriculum in addition to heating, lighting, rent, etc. Also, instead of closing at three in the afternoon, yeshivas remain in session into the evening hours and even later.  Baal habatim and alumni could do more to help families that can’t afford to pay. Turning kids away should not even be an option.
