Hosted by the Israel Center22 Keren HaYesod Street, Jerusalem
ATID recently published two short essays entitled "The Economics of Edutainment," asking hard questions about a declining educational atmosphere in yeshivot and seminaries which educate Diaspora students in Israel, and pointing a finger at a lack of economic professionalism and poor treatment of staff in at least some schools. Many respondents thanked ATID for saying what others feared to say, while others suggested that lamenting problems did little to solve them.
Please join us for an evening of discussion on "The Economics of Edutainment." Four panelists, all experienced educators or administrators in one-year programs for men and women, will raise differing perspectives on the changing landscape of our educational institutions, after which we will make the first steps in convening smaller working groups to help propose solutions to the problems we decry.
