Educational Schisms in Israel

By Walter Ackerman

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), October 1997

The author of this article, Professor Emeritus of Education at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, points to an ongoing schism in the education system in Israel. The author points to many expressions of this schism, and concludes that ideological differences have made private schools a common solution, but have also had a heavy toll on the quality of public state schools. The continuous fragmentation of the state school system, provides an opportunity for transforming differences into bitter antagonisms, and fails to create any cohesion for Israel society.
