Evaluation of the Pardes Educators Alumni Support Project: Promoting Retention of Pardes Educator Program Alumni

By Ezra Kopelowitz, Stephen Markowitz

Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies, February 11, 2011

This is an evaluation of The Pardes Educators Program (PEP), a two year program consisting of advanced Jewish text learning and education that takes place at the Pardes Institute in Jerusalem. PEP addresses two key needs facing American Jewish education: 1) Recruitment and training of quality Jewish educators; and, 2) through the Pardes Educators Alumni Support Project (PEASP), support and retention. This evaluation project focuses on the second of these two areas, with the goal of examining the strategies PEASP is taking to tackle core issues regarding support and retention of educators once they enter the field. How does the variety of support and educational services offered by PEASP to its alumni after they enter the field: 1) improve their professional work and 2) contribute to the larger challenge of retaining quality teachers in the profession.
