This report explores the future of UK Jewish education in the area of full-time day school education at the primary and secondary school levels. It examines the rise of Jewish schooling in the context of changes that have taken place in education in the United Kingdom over the years. Rather than the interlocking system of education that the UK state school system is perceived to be, the system of UK Jewish education is shown to be one of diverse niche markets. The reports shows how UK Jewish education exists as a series of interconnected Jewish day school systems that do not overlap in terms of provision--primarily because practical and religious barriers limit parental choice and available options regarding their children's schooling. The report also highlight key strategic issues for the future which include human resources, financing, the provision of places and communication among other important issues.
