Trends in Jewish Education
Gleanings: The Future for Jewish Day Schools
Gleanings is the ejournal of the William Davidson Graduate School of Jewish Education of the Jewish Theological Seminary. Our Jewish day schools are at a crossroads. For this issue of Gleanings, we asked the top thinkers, leaders, and doers in the Jewish day school sector today to respond to three basic questions: 1. What does Jewish day school education look like today and what could it look like in the future? 2. Why is this important for our collective Jewish future? 3. What should day school leaders do to help us achieve the results we want?

Truth-Telling in the UK Jewish Studies Classroom for Orthodox Educators
UK Orthodox Jewish educators face a number of ethical dilemmas surrounding truth-telling in the classroom. While they must comply with government legislation and high standards of professional conduct, they may also wish their practice to be informed by halachic considerations. This theoretical study explores the potential tensions that may arise when allegiances to the above areas lead to conflicting courses of action, and attempts to plot a course of appropriate conduct that can satisfy all considerations. Direct distortion is identified as an inappropriate tool, whereas omission of content that will hinder students’ Orthodox development is considered preferable to unfiltered disclosure.

HaYidion - Prizmah's Journal of Jewish Education: Differentiation
Jewish day schools want every child to succeed in their learning and social-emotional development. How can schools accomplish those lofty goals while teaching many students in the same classroom? This issue of Hayidion explores that conundrum and showcases various ways that learning can be differentiated to meet the needs, capacities, and interests of different students. Articles address differentiation within the classroom, and supporting teachers to learn, transition to, and apply methods of differentiation. Authors discuss the "how-to" as well as the larger goals and vision.

Book Review: Cultures and Contexts of Jewish Education. Authors: Barry Chazan, Robert Chazan, Benjamin Jacobs
Behind a dry title, the slim Cultures and Contexts of Jewish Education offers the reader an excellent concise review of Jewish history from the Bible to the present. The authors draw on their respective areas of expertise to situate Jewish educational models over time within broader patterns of Jewish society and close with a surprising indictment of 20th century American Jewish education along with an optimistic educational proposal for the uncertain Jewish future of those “most engaged with modernity and its challenges” (p. xxii).

Who I Am and What I Think: The Contribution of Personality and Socioeconomic Traits to the Attitudes of Homeschooling Parents toward the Education System and Homeschooling in Israel
The consistent growth of homeschooling in recent decades can be considered a reflection of public criticism of the education system. This criticism has given rise to alternative education methods; homeschooling is one of the most radical examples. In light of the increasing scope of homeschooling and its significant implications, it is important to understand its origins. However, the research on the attitudes of parents who choose homeschooling has not considered the role of personality of parents in their attitudes.
