    Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday extended his public-school employee vaccination mandate to private and parochial schools. Under Thursday’s announcement, employees at all private and religious education schools — including yeshivas and Catholic schools — must provide proof of a first vaccination dose by Dec. 20. Some 56,000 workers at 938 non-public schools will be forced to comply with the new mandate, according to a statement from de Blasio and Health Commissioner Dr. Dave Chokshi.  Total madness that cannot stand in court.

     “There is going to be a lot of opposition to this, there is no doubt about it,” a staffer at a Borough Park yeshiva told The Post. “A lot of us felt under attack already. This is going to continue that feeling.” The worker, who declined to give his name, said the vast majority of yeshiva staffers are unvaccinated, and there are schools where not a single employee has gotten a shot.
