Congratulations to Rabbi Avi Schnall on being appointed vice chairman of the New Jersey Department of Education’s nonpublic school advisory committee. Rabbi Schnall’s appointment is a testament to the high esteem in which he is held by his fellow committee members. He is knowledgeable, passionate, and effective as he recently illustrated once again (click here). Rabbi Schnall now joins the ranks of his many Agudath Israel colleagues who serve in leadership roles in similar advisory committees and nonpublic school associations across the country.

Stay tuned for next week’s newsletter where we hope to provide our reaction to the expected release of President Trump’s school choice plan. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is scheduled to speak at the American Federation for Children annual school choice summit of which Agudath Israel is a proud co-sponsor.

In the meantime, Minnesota and Texas are attempting to become the next school choice states.
