Jewish Studies and Jewish Students in Independent Schools

By Pearl Kane

Courtyard, 1999

The author reports on the findings of a survey of independent (public, but not parochial) school administrators in the metropolitan New York area, in order to gauge receptivity to introducing various forms of Jewish studies into independent school curricula. The report finds that while most such schools include courses or units relating to Holocaust studies, only one such school includes a Jewish studies course. Jewish parents and children are not pressing for more Jewish content, according to administrators.
