Proving Academic Superiority
BY JOSEPH G. WEISBERG
(Editor, Boston Jewish Advocate)
In communities all over America
a new trend in Jewish education is
clearly discernible -- the Jewish
Originally exclusive with Ortho-
doxy as a bulwark against loss of
identity, the Jewish Day School
has in late years become a counter-
thrust of the Conservative Move-
ment to all-absorbing secular edu-
cation and is currently under con-
sideration by Reform. Over the past
two decades, there has been a truly
fantastic on-going expansion in en-
rollment and facilities of the day
There is little question but that
from an educational point of view
these Jewish day schools operate on
an extraordinarily high level. The
general studies teachers are recog-
nized as of the best. The teachers
in the Hebrew curriculum are like-

reputations as being of superior
quality. National Standard tests

fair that those who want it should
not be denied this intensive Jewish
education which is not possible
through other means.
The Jewish Day School simply
offers the same opportunity to Jews
that has been given through the
years on a far vaster scale by Catho-
lics, Lutherans, Baptists, Seventh
Day Adventists and others to mem-
bers of their >respective groups.
With Jewish leaders convinced
that meaningful Jewish survival
can only be assured in this land
by profound religious training fully
integrated with the democratic
values of the American environ-
ment, more and more reliance is
being put on the promise of the
Jewish Day School.
While a strong case can be made
for community subsidization of the
Jewish day schools as important
to the welfare and perpetuation of
the Jewish community, in most
places this is not yet an established
fact. In the meantime, these schools
