The case of Kiryas Joel

You don't have to look nearly so far afield. Right here in the US we have towns like Kiryas Joel, whose chief contribution to the larger society appears to be litigation.

To the point of this thread, the population of KJ is quite inbred, and as a result there is a large proportion of mentally- and developmentally-handicapped children. Educating such children is notoriously expensive, so KJ's leaders decided that the State of New York should pick up the tab, even though the rest of KJ's children attend religious school.

But mixing with the goyim is a big no-no! So, this being New York, the State Legislature thoughtfully declared into existence a unique school district just for the handicapped children of Kiryas Joel. This also provided a convenient end-run around the problem of KJ's male students boarding a public school bus which could have been driven by a woman. Another big no-no of course.

The village's handicapped children once attended yeshivas and received government-subsidized instruction for the handicapped there. But in 1985, the United States Supreme Court barred public-school teachers from providing handicapped services on parochial school grounds
Solution? Create your own school district! This one went all the way to the Supreme Court.

^^^ And lost.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thats what I intend to reverse.
