Followup Story concerning the testing problem at Brooklyn College for the Spring Semester Finals

Wanted to point out that there were several politicians who apparently were in an uproar trying to change the CUNY Test Dates because they fell out on Shavous, apparently ignoring the fact that the LAW OF NY STATE makes it mandatory to provide make up dates for religous observance.

CUNY just released a letter about this, making sure everyone knows when the make up dates are, but the fact that they were forced to do it so quickly and so publicly is absurd. I am proud that the Yeshiva World News website actually wrote at the bottom of the story (see the link) that they wondered if there was a law why was there an uproar?

Yes, why indeed? Why did Jews go ahead, make a huge bullseye on themselves, creating this uproar over the testing dates when anyone who goes to any college in NY knows that there will be and always has been make up dates for religous observances for any and all tests.
