School for Parents: What Parents Want and What They Get from Their Children's Jewish Day Schools

By Alex Pomson

Brandeis University Press, 2007

The author explores the impact of Jewish day schools on parents' lives by examining the grounds on which parents choose day schools for their children, and the ways in which schools and parents interact. He bases his observations on close study of a medium-size Jewish community in which there are more than one non-Orthodox day school option. He describes the community and its schools and parents in detail, using pseudonyms.
