Goings On

As the economy tanks, the media is reporting a lot of scrambling in Jewish educational organizations. Some Jewish day schools are already feeling the economic situation, while others are expecting to next academic year, in the form of decreased enrollment and increased tuition subsidization requests. Some top Jewish education stories being talked about these days: Hebrew charter schools, broad tuition cuts, mergers, and "GED"-ing out.

  1. I marvel at the lack of research done for articles these days. "GED"-ing out isn't new! 20 years ago, even 30 years ago, students in my day school transferred to local public schools for 12th grade. They only had general studies, so their grades were higher and it was easier to get into elite colleges.
