What the ............

I decided to take a look at the tuition costs at NYC's notorious Little Red School House and Elizabeth Irwin High School. The cost of sending your kid to 12th grade in Elizabeth Irwin is $29,000.

Contrary to Communist rhetoric the school is not egalitarian and conducts interviews of both students and parents. Yeshivas do interview the students at the high school level. The beloved Rav Roov was not accepted to at least one Yeshiva. He did impress
the staff of the Yeshiva High School I attended for a very short time. They were very upset with me when our local Rabbi coaxed him to another school.

I wonder what scores brownie points with the Commie nuts at the Little Red School House. Maybe if little Vladimir builds a Leggo Gulag or Chernobyl this will impress the commisars. Perhaps if the parents are related to noted Communist dupes Paul Robeson or were ex Weathermen they get a legacy discount.

Naturally the commisars want to weed out any independent thinking at high school. On the high school level the ability to recite slogans mindlessly must be demonstrated.
Do note the graduates of this school can then follow the Old Bolshevik network into Accademia, Media or as a Union hack.

It would seem that perhaps NYC had a need to create the Puente school because the working class can not afford 29,000 dollars. Thus what the folks at Elizabeth Irwin have created is the commie equivalent of a warped Prep school. Of course a few token
children from the working class are thrown in as zoo animals. The more exclusive NYC
schools will admit some promising disadvantaged students on scholarship. However, they do not bandy about idiotic notions of Social Justice or claim to speak for the working class.

Florian and Z have pointed out that Commie hacks go nuclear at any non Muslim mention of God in school. In a few districts in California students get to play Muslim for a period. NYC should end this farce and eliminate all alternative schools with the execption of those commited to superior academics or vocation. NYC does have a high school for those who are seeking business careers. It also has schools that focus more on the trades. Unless NYC is prepared to build a series of schools for every political community it needs to close the El Puente school.

Ah, precious memories! Now class, let's all sing the alma mater:

Arise, you prisoners of starvation!
Arise, you wretched of the earth!
For justice thunders condemnation:
A better world's in birth!
No more tradition's chains shall bind us,
Arise you slaves, no more in thrall!
The earth shall rise on new foundations:
We have been nought, we shall be all!
'Tis the final conflict,
Let each stand in his place.
The international soviet
Shall be the human race
'Tis the final conflict,
Let each stand in his place.
The international working class
Shall be the human race

We want no condescending saviors
To rule us from their judgment hall,
We workers ask not for their favors
Let us consult for all:
To make the thief disgorge his booty
To free the spirit from its cell,
We must ourselves decide our duty,
We must decide, and do it well.
'Tis the final conflict,
Let each stand in his place.
The international soviet
Shall be the human race
'Tis the final conflict,
Let each stand in his place.
The international working class
Shall be the human race

Quite an analysis, Beak. I don't know how you came to associate The Little Red School with communism but you can't seem to control that neurosis.

I suspect people send their children because they get a good education.

Mr. Ducky said...

Now stop it Farmer or we are going to have to go back to our discussion of Bryce Marden and still life.

Graduates of The Little Red School where art instruction is a core element can probably trace the development of priciple components from the Dutch vanitas through Cezanne's reduction to Marsden and Kelly.

Yeah sure.

Would you like fries with that?

The rich and fabulous send their kids to the Little Red Schoolhouse.

Its nothing less than all out war when it comes to sending the bluebloods and their hangers-on to private school here. That includes kindergarten.

Ducky

Your response is more flat earth denial of the obvious. More to the point it is an Old Bolshevik club that is more exclusive than any Yeshiva. Yeshivas and Catholic schools do not interview parents.

I guess this is more Communist hypocrisy. A school that preaches lectures about the working class but has no more than a couple of zoo specimens from actual working class families.

The children of the Rosenbergs ended up there by accident. Ronald Radosh who is a graduate has no idea clue. NYC residents who interact with the dolts merely misunderstand Commies in training.

beakerkin said...

If the Commies want to help the working class shut Elizabeth Irwin down and replace it with a Walmart or Ikea.

UI

Sending your child for Communist indoctrination is a form of child abuse.

Batya said...

That's even more than the American Jewish Day schools. maybe since the kids come from smaller families, so recruitment cost more, when each family has 1.2 vs 2.9 or more kids.

Urban Infidel said...

beak,
Indeed. By the same token, I almost got sent to the John Birch Society Summer Camp. Glad my mother changed her mind. Even she realized it was too much.

beakerkin said...

Batya

I think that is more than sending your kids to NYU without the dorm.


UI

The sories of a John Birch Summer camp would be priceless.

Mr. Ducky said...

I'll tell you Beak, interviewing parents is a real blunder. Who the hell wants parents who understand the schools methods, techniques and philosophy?

Sounds like a dismal idea to me.

beakerkin said...

Sure Ducky one want parents commited to class genocide, treason and sedition. One wouldn't want to accidentally allow a the child of a parent who might harbor patriotic sentiments.

Lets see it is permitted to exclude a child from a school based upon a subjective interview by Bolsheviks. I wonder if you would be as charitable with a religious school that excluded children who had a gay parent. How about a Tony school or Country club that excludes Commies?

Urban Infidel said...

beak,
I'm glad we didn't go. I liked my inner-city camp so much.
I remember attending the JBS camp seminar with my mother. She asked my sister and I if we wanted to go and we both said 'no!'
I think the JBS still has summer camps.

My grandparents used to rent a summer house across the street from Welch's home in Belmont, MA. Really beautiful exclusive area.

Hold on Farmer John, your daughter is getting room and board. The students of Elizabeth Irwin get lunch and maybe breakfast but do not board.

Always On Watch Two said...

$29,000 without room and board? Even for NYC, that seems exorbitant at first, but maybe not.

In comparison, tuition at Gonzaga College High School is a mere $13,000. Nevertheless, tuition at Madeira, one of the most expensive schools in the D.C. area, is also very high--$28.330. Another comparison: National Cathedral School--about $27,000.

Duck said, Who the hell wants parents who understand the schools methods, techniques and philosophy?

The parents are shelling out the bucks. Why should they know?

Always On Watch Two said...

In a few districts in California students get to play Muslim for a period.

Nothing like role-playing to elicit sympathy.

The Merry Widow said...

AoW-It's worse, that "role-playing" in strict mohammadin eyes is THE SAME AS THE CHILDREN "REVERTING"! So if they do not act like mohammadins they are apostate! Talk about a set-up!
And in the spiritual realm, what doors that can open bares watching!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Farmer John

I am floored at how close NYU and the Elizabeth Irwin School are in costs.

Farmer John said...

I'm not. I wonder how much those elite Northeastern Prep schools like Phillips Academy/ Andover, Exeter, and Hotchkiss go for. That's where the Bush, Kerry and Kennedy kids go.
