Beyond the Community

Jewish Day School Education in Britain

(p.193) Ten Beyond the Community
Jewish Day Schools, Jewish Communities

This chapter examines Jewish day schools in Britain. While some Jewish schools in Britain are private institutions, funded by trusts and individuals within the Jewish community, most Jewish primary and secondary schools are located within the state sector. Here, the two issues of funding and accountability to the government are the keys to understanding Jewish day school education in Britain today. The chapter examines them as well as the matter of curriculum, which has also been shaped by the relationship between Jewish schools and the government. Clearly, these are not completely separate fields of concern, and throughout the chapter links and connections between them will be made as appropriate.

Keywords:   Britain, funding, accountability, British government, Jewish day schools, Jewish school curriculum
