Why Jewish Parents Send Their Children to Day Schools

By Steven M. Cohen, Shaul Kelner

Brandeis University Press, 2007

The authors present results of a survey they conducted in order to explore issues surrounding decisions made by Jewish parents about whether or not to send their children to Jewish day schools. The survey gathered data from parents of Jewish children in five major Jewish population centers in the United States. In addition to other findings, the authors find that family income has little impact on the decision. They share details of the survey findings, and reccomendations.
