We are proud to share A Sharp New Advocacy Tool for Jewish Day Schools, an important piece that explores an academic study conducted by the Witherspoon Institute in Princeton, NJ. In this study, senior fellow William Jeynes draws a correlation between receiving a private religious school education and top tier academic excellence. This study confirms the message that Jewish educators have been sharing all along: "attending private religious schools is associated with the highest level of academic achievement among the three school types [religious private schools, charter schools, and public schools], even when sophisticated controls are used to adjust for socioeconomic status."
A Sharp New Advocacy Tool for Jewish Day Schools, which is co-authored by Dr. Scott Goldberg, Director of the YU School Partnership, and the heads of PEJE, the Schechter Day School Network, RAVSAK, and PARDES: Day Schools of Reform Judaism, explores how this study can be used to bolster recruitment efforts for Jewish day schools.
We encourage you to share this article, and the important implications of the landmark study that it espouses, with your faculty, alumni and parent body through social media and in your school newsletter.
