Day Schools Focusing on Combating Abuse

By Gary Rosenblatt

The Jewish Week, September 15, 2010

A new study, the first of its kind, on whether and how Jewish day schools around the country address issues of physical, psychological and sexual abuse, concludes that the problem is widespread but "is beginning to be dealt with effectively." More than 40 percent of 320 schools polled -- primarily Modern Orthodox but including Conservative, community schools and "a sprinkling" of haredi yeshivas -- responded to the questionnaire, a surprisingly high figure, according to the study's sponsor, the Institute for University-School Partnership, a division of Yeshiva University's Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration.
