Has Remote Learning Set Back Jewish Day School Students?
The team from Rosov Consulting has released a first report about students’ experience of remote learning at Jewish high schools since the onset of COVID-19. See here. Their data prompt valuable recommendations
In July 2020, 16 Jewish day high schools fielded a survey to their students about their experience of remote
learning since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey was developed with support from the
Government of Israel’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs as part of work for Unit.Ed—a day school initiative in
Europe and Latin America. It was originally fielded in Jewish communities such as Milan, Paris, and Buenos
Aires. Subsequently, it was slightly modified for students in North America. North American data were
collected and analyzed with the support of the Jim Joseph Foundation and in partnership with Prizmah:
Center for Jewish Day Schools. After data analysis was complete, interviews were conducted with school
leaders at the schools whose students had responded most positively in order to learn about their educational
practices during this period.
