It doesn’t take much to bring out the Jewish parent’s competitive side. The Chief Rabbi and the United Synagogue top brass think they are being reassuring when they talk about “inclusion” and “setting the bar low” when formulating the new admissions policy for Jewish schools.
But they ignore the frenzied panic which grips any parent — Jewish or not — when there is the possibility they may be denied a place at their chosen school.
If we have to pass a test, bring it on, spell it out. No one is going to outdo our efforts on behalf of our treasured children.
