Analytic Philosophy of Education and Jewish Education: The Road Not Taken

  • Barry Chazan
Chapter
Part of the International Handbooks of Religion and Education book series (IHRE, volume 5)

Abstract

Education is often a case of seized opportunities or missed moments. There is a little-known story of a missed moment in contemporary American-Jewish education which while seemingly modest in proportions, might in fact constitute a major missed opportunity. This chapter is the story of that missed moment.
