OPINION

An Approach To Jewish
Teacher Recruitment

BY MENACHEM RAAB
Special To The Jewish News

Much ink has been used to
describe teacher "burn out" in
the American educational sys-
tem. Dedicated souls who spent
a lifetime teaching are leaving
the field in droves. The reasons
given are many but in sum they
add up to the truth that teach-
ing is no longer a profession for
anyone who has a reasonable al-
ternative. If this is true in gen-
eral education, how much more
true in the field of Jewish edu-
cation.
However, in Jewish education
the problem is compounded ten-
fold. First, there never was an
overabundance of professionals
in Jewish education. Second, it
was never a financially lucra-
tive field for individuals to
enter. Third, it never offered
sufficient hours for a family
breadwinner to earn a substan-
tial living working on one posi-
tion. And fourth, little if any
dignity or prestige came with
this profession.
The list of drawbacks in the
Jewish educational field could
go on and on. Most people asso-
ciated in one way or another
with Jewish education are
familiar with all the problems.

The result has been that few
young people consider a career
in Jewish education. The Jewish
teachers' training schools have a
meager enrollment; of their
graduates, a minor percentage
actually enters the field.
What has happened in the
last decade is that most people
who are teaching are doing so as
a source of supplementary in-
come, not as the primary source
for their livelihoods. Students
who must earn their keep while
going to school are teaching.
Women who have to earn addi-
tional income to supplement
their husbands' salaries are
teaching. Retired individuals or
unqualified personnel are teach-
ing.
The net outcome is that few, if
any, professional educators are
now in Jewish education. The
average salary is at the
government-designated official
poverty level. The classes are
staffed by mostly disinterested
instructors. The students go
through a few years of so-called
Jewish learning and are never
"turned on" to their Jewish
heritage, or they are "turned
