NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The de Blasio administration has reportedly completed a three-year long investigation into city yeshivas accused of failing to teach students basic academics.

But sources tell the Daily News there is no word on its conclusion.

A spokesman for the mayor, Eric phillips,  said "we decline to comment."

Critics have accused the mayor of stalling the investigation to avoid angering the Hasidic community.

The pro-secular Jewish education group 'Yaffed' has alleged that 39 yeshivas serving 25,000 students at male-only schools that receive public funding have failed to provide simple secular academic lessons.

Also, according to a report in the WSJ, schools chancellor Richard Carranza says 15 yeshivas haven’t let New York City officials inside to investigate the allegations.
