Yeshiva Sues For Tuition Bill (Redux)

A Guest Post By E. Fink

(This was originally posted Friday afternoon, the death penalty conversation dominated the threads over the weekend, as this is a pertinent and interesting topic, this post has been reposted)

HAFTR is a very large modern orthodox school in the 5 Towns.

Apparently they are owed a lot of money from quite a few families.

One family came home to a summons. HAFTR is suing the family for a $10,000 bill.

Legally, a tuition contract is a binding contract. When you sign on that dotted line you are binding yourself to pay the agreed upon amount. Not everyone pays what they promise. The schools have been left with little recourse in attempts to recover accounts that are in arrears.

Is this the start of a new trend?
