They scrimp on support staff and maintenance and cannot provide the enhancements and extra-curricular activities that are routine in public schools and stronger private schools. Of course, there are exceptions: a small number of high-tuition institutions that cater substantially to more affluent families can afford services and salaries that 90% of our day schools cannot.<br /><a class="doclink" href="index.php?option=com_docman&amp;task=doc_download&amp;gid=425&amp;Itemid=362" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.jesna.org/components/com_docman/themes/default/images/icons/16x16/pdf.png" border="0" alt="icon" /> The Impact of the Economic Downturn on Jewish Day Schools (<span class="small">Link</span>)</a><br /><br />Previous research has emph ...

The field of Jewish education has been transformed in the past 15 years by a series of bold experiments, substantial new investments and unprecedented partnerships forged by philanthropists, local federations of Jewish philanthropy and educational institutions. Still, the needs of the field are vast, and it is not at all clear whether the American Jewish community can marshal the necessary resources to revitalize itself through Jewish education. In order to assess what the community can do, both financially and programmatically, far greater clarity is needed about the dimensions of the challenge.<br /> <a href="index.php?option=com_docman&amp;task=doc_download&amp;gid=166&amp;Itemid=362" target="_blank" class="doclink"><img border="0" alt="icon" src="components/com_docman/themes/default/images/icons/16x16/pdf.png" />&nbsp;Talking Dollars and Sense About Jewish Education (<span class="sm ...
