Israel was chosen for the study
mission because of Mr. Halprin's
familiarity with the nation, peo-

because "Israel had lessons to
As an education official in
America, Dr. Cotman is well
aware of the wall of separation
that exists between church and
state. In Israel, such a dichotomy
does not exist.
"People don't mind using pub-
lic shekels to support non-pub-
lic schools because they know the
outcome is to everyone's benefit.
I'm not endorsing co-mingling
public resources for private
schools. I just think it's indicative
of the Israelis' commitment to use
every possible resource to help
their young people."
Dr. Cotman expressed some
concern over an observation he
made during the mission.
Israeli educators, he said, rely
heavily on educational innova-
tions from America. "All the ed-
ucators studied in the United
States. Their reliance on Amer-
ican educational experiences
makes Israeli education vulner-
able to the political winds that
direct education in America.
They need to be careful they
don't make the mistakes we
made by moving away from the
notion that every child can
learn." ❑

Manchester, England, and Nige-
ria. He participated in the mis-
sion for both personal and
professional reasons.
He cited his desire to learn how
education thrives in a nation with
such diverse populations, in-
cluding olim from the former So-
viet Union and Ethiopia. An
interest in seeing how education
fits into Israeli society, a quick-
ly emerging industrial nation,
also played a key role in his mo-
tivation for attending.
"Israel is a case study of a na-
tion in flux," he said. "The poten-
tial threat of destruction creates
a different character."
What impressed Dr. Cotman
most about Israeli education was
what he described as "the over-
whelming commitment by the
government to fully utilize the
talents of every young person.
"At every school we visited, we
saw a fierce commitment to fully
develop the young people and
plug them into the economy or go
to college. Nowhere did I see a
willingness to write off kids like
this country (the United States)
is willing to do."
The purpose behind the mis-
sion to Israel was to give policy
makers a flavor of how the coun-
try looks at its youth.
'The purpose was not so much
to take what Israel does and
bring it back. We wanted to get
people to think about Israel's na-
tional commitment and will to-
