This symposium paper focuses on both classical and contemporary issues in Modern Orthodox education. The questions and responses address a range of topics relating to curricular, ideological and affective elements in the educational system in high school education both in North America and Israel. They also touch on issues that emerge in post-high school settings in Israel such as yeshivot and midrashot, where many of our graduates study after completion of high school in America.
