Maximizing Parent Participation

By Jerome Raik

Eugene Borowitz, September 1, 1978

The author describes the approach of New York's Havurah Schools, a loosely associated network of parent-teacher cooperatives bringing part-time Jewish education to parents and children alike, with parents retaining decision-making power over the curriculum. He discusses the benefits and challenges inherent in these types of approach to Jewish education, and provides examples of how certain subjects have been studied by certain Havurah Schools.
