Central Agencies and Voluntary Covenant: Making a Compelling Case for Standards

By Avi West

Jewish Education Service of North America (JESNA), Summer 2002

The author responds to the interview with Dr. Ada Beth Cutler in this issue of Agenda. He puts forth a model of "voluntary covenant" in which standards could operate to improve Jewish education without the element of accountability. In the author's formulation, equity would be an expression of tzedek; legislated goals (din) would need to be balanced with specific circumstances and local realities (rachamim).
