Inside Jewish Day Schools

Leadership, Learning, and Community

A perfect guide to those wishing to understand the contemporary Jewish day school.
 
This book takes readers inside Jewish day schools to observe what happens day to day, as well as what the schools mean to their students, families, and communities. Many different types of Jewish day schools exist, and the variations are not well understood, nor is much information available about how day schools function. Inside Jewish Day Schools proves a vital guide to understanding both these distinctions and the everyday operations of these contemporary schools.
