said David Gad-Harf, execu-
tive director of JCCouncil.
Ms. McGriff said her posi-
tion on the Rev. Farrakhan's
appearance at a Detroit school
does not differ from the state-
ment made by Detroit Board

of Education President April
Howard Coleman on March
19.
Ms. Coleman said at the
time, "The Board of Education
has firmly and repeatedly
stated its support of the wish-
es and actions of the Malcolm

who requested permission to
use Mackenzie High School."

can't wait until parents dis-
cover the need to teach their
children about our heritage.
Sign them up right at the door.
b) Make the first year or two
free for all unaffiliated families.
c) Put up some real money
for contests, stressing excel-
lence in Jewish studies. If a
child could win $1,000 or
$5,000 or $10,000 for knowing
his Mishnah or Tanach, don't
you think there would be ex-
citement in Jewish studies?
How about giving trips to Is-
rael or scholarships to a Jew-
ish college? Come on, are we
really using our dollars wisely
if learning Torah is just a
drudgery that won't make any
difference in our children's
lives?
d) With computers we can
teach Torah, Halachah, Mish-
nah, etc., to each child in their
home with the proper connec-
tion. I don't understand why
this has not been seriously
thought about. It should be of-
fered as a last measure, but as
a measure nonetheless. It
would save on carpooling and
often would be more exciting
than class.
e) Raise the level of pay ac-
cording to the credentials of
staff. If teachers are inspired to
study they will be better pre-
pared and enthusiastic. Let's
make it worth the teachers'
while to get more knowledge
and take more courses in the
study of and the ways to teach

Torah.
0 Administrators should be
chosen for their ability to com-
mand respect, for their schol-
arship and ability to inspire
teachers. Administrators
should have common goals in
each school and the perfor-
mance of the children should
be monitored seriously.
g) Administrators or teach-
ers who don't believe in what
they teach should not be hired.
h) Make more day schools.
They work better than after-
noon schools.
i) Make more high schools.
Public education or even pri-
vate schools are the very places
our children learn to assimi-
late. If our childrens' identity
is important, let's keep them in
a Jewish school as long as pos-
sible.
I guarantee the results.
