Slippery Slope

Notes From a Crumbling Democracy

Education: May 2, 2012

without comments

According to the State Comptroller’s annual report released yesterday, core subjects are not taught properly in National Religious schools, with English being neglected almost entirely.  In addition, standardized test scores of students in National Religious schools are significantly lower than those of students in regular state schools.  Furthermore, many complaints have been received about the integration of families from religious outreach groups (“garin torani”) in National Religious kindergartens and schools, which results in radicalization in areas such as the separation of boys and girls and allowing rabbis into kindergartens, as well as about the fact that many teachers are not being prescreened to asses their background and education.
