Yeshivas That Fail Their Students

Da'as Hedyot has a series of posts about how the yeshiva system didn't work for him; how the point is constantly hammered in that a good Jew is a Jew who learns (Gemara) and how yeshivas are highly unsuccessful in teaching the necessary skills to many people who must fake their way through school with only a dim idea and appreciation for what's going on.

Bitter? Yes, but he speaketh the truth. Jewish Observer articles and chinuch conventions and symposiums abound, but what about this widespread problem is being alleviated? I previously touched on a related issue in
Help, I'm Illiterate.
