Kibutz Movement School Trains Teachers in Unique Way

By BEN FRANK

(Copyright 1983, JTA, Inc.)

This college is really
different.
.
The man who is dean one
day can be the students'
> waiter or their chauffeur
the next.
This school originally did
not like to give degrees or
diplomas.
This school has more
democracy, no ranking
> and small classes.
It is Oranim, the School of
Education of the Kibutz
Movement and is located
near the town of Tivon, just
outside of Haifa. And the
dean, Moshe Giladi, like
every kibutznik, talks pro-
udly about the 3,000 stu-
dents attending Oranim,

60-65 percent of whom are
from kibutzim.
"These students are older,
they've been to the army
and completed an addi-
tional year of service to the
kibutz movement. They
have not time to waste and
their expectations are
high," he said in an inter-
view covering the programs
at Oranim. "The students
who come to the school are
the future of the kibutz
movement and, in many
ways, of the state of Israel."
The influence of the
kibutz movement is felt far
beyond its borders because
of its uniqueness, its
cooperative and democratic
way of life, and its singular
educational system.
Yet, kibutzniks consti-
tute only 3.6 percent of
the Israeli population
and there are only 230
kibutzim in the entire
state.
Just as the respect and
admiration of the kibutzim
far outweigh their numbers,
so does this school of educa-
tion. Some 25 percent of all
elementary school teachers
in Israel have been trained
at Oranim, which sees its
role as an alternative to the
general system of education
in Israel.

Pesach Product Price-Fixing
Probe Is Called for in NY

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The City Council committee
on consumer affairs held the
second hearing in City
Council history on kosher
food prices last week and
recommended that the city's
department of consumer af-
fairs and State Attorney
General Robert Abrams in-
vestigate widespread
charges of price fixing in
kosher-for-Passover prod-
ucts.
The first hearing was last
year, just before Passover.
Noach Dear, the Brook-
lyn Councilman who repre-
sents the Flatbush and Boro
Park districts, which are
among the most heavily
populated Jewish sections
of Brooklyn, served as
chairman for the hearing.
He said that he had in-
vited the major pro-
ducers of Passover prod-
ucts to participate in the
hearing "and not one of
them showed up."
Dear said the consumer
affairs department was
conducting a comparison
shopping study on Passover
prices and planned to pub-
lish a list of its findings.
He said the consumer af-
fairs committee would con-
duct a hearing, probably
next month, on year-round
kosher product prices.
Dear said there was
evidence that consumers
were complaining to
merchants about "exor-
bitant" price increases
