New York Overreaches, Tries to Regulate Private Schools

The New York Board of Regents has proposed a rule that would subject religious and independent schools to “all statutory provisions, Rules of the Regents, and Regulations of the Commissioner.” The proposal would also give the State Education Department the authority to order the closure of any elementary or high school that it finds not in compliance with all statutory provisions, rules and regulations of the commissioner.

Private school advocates in New York, led by the State CAPE, have pushed back, arguing that the rule would fundamentally transform the relationship between private schools and the state.
