I couldn't agree more with Florence except there are certain facts that she
I live on Chasmonayim just a few minutes away from Kiriat Sefer (see
Bais-medrash Vol1#17 about my question regarding an Eruv) Our Yeshuv is
mainly people who follow Rav Kook Z'L and we do take in pupils from the
Modin area. (In fact my section of the Yeshuv is know as Ramat Modiim)
However, The area where we live is governed by Moatzit Matei Benyamin.
Children in Talmor and Dolev are the ones bused through dangerous areas
because of the ruling of the ones in charge of Moatzit Matei Benyamin and
the parents don't have much of a say in it. (School Zoning Regulations)
Worst than that, my more heredi neighbors had to open up their own
independent school because the Moatzah did not allow bussing to Kiriat
Sefer. It is not a matter of endangering children because of a philosophy -
it is a matter of playing politics with children which occurs here.
