Some Notes on the Madrich: A Child-Care Worker in Israel

By Morton I. Teicher

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), March 1977

The author explores differences and similarities between child care workers in Israel and the United States. Among the differences is the unique history of the position in Israel, where child-care began as a high-status occupation and became low-status over time, whereas in the United States the position has (unfortunately) always been seen as low-status. Similarities include a strong need for staff development and in-service training in the field in both countries. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, ed. by Sanford Sherman, v.53, no.3, March 1977, p.238-241.
