Towards A Culture of Accountability

By Wendy Rosov

Jewish Education Service of North America (JESNA), 2006

The field of Jewish education needs a new culture of accountability, the author argues. She lays out five characteristics that should be sought: (1) clearly articulated goals in measurable terms with success defined; (2) educators who function as reflective practitioners; (3) funders who require and provide resources for evaluation; (4) robust social science research about effective Jewish education; and 5) useful feedback from end-users of the Jewish educational system. The author discusses obstacles to these goals and makes recommendations for overcoming them.
