"What Jewish Schools Could Be" invites parents, teachers, and principals to take another look at some of the fundamental issues in Jewish education, both in America and abroad. Sara Carter asks us to do some hard thinking about certain practices which are widely accepted in Jewish schools � practices which are depriving our students of quality education in Judaic and general studies. She demonstrates that by revisiting Torah directives and reviewing research in education, we can find solutions that make it possible
for our students to emerge as eager learners and as Jews who are excited about their purpose in life.
Within these solutions is the recognition of a vital component in the human psyche: the need for connection � connection to oneself, to one�s peers, to one�s teacher, to one�s subjects, and to Hashem. What Jewish Schools Could Be offers �new-old� pathways designed to restore these connections.
