This chapter explains the Milton Friedman's economic theory model for Jewish religious elementary education, proposing a set of standards for Torah elementary education and to fund poor families who send their children to qualifying schools. It presents a discourse on Yehoshua B. Gamla's ordinance involving religious educational standards, the Religious Education Subsidy Program (RESP), and competitions based on standards. It also sets out a proposal that urges the government to prioritize Torah education for the youth.
