Rightsizing Our Children's Education

A good friend (and former teacher) of mine, David Kirschner, has posted once again at the Beyond Tshuva blog, this time about the education children are and are not receiving in Orthodox schools - particularly those with ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, and the like. He then extends that to issues not related to any type of disorder, and raises great points throughout. It is a really good post, and has already attracted a number of comments.

Check it out.


  1. Many times, ADD and ADHD symptoms are caused or increased by insufficient sleep. We slept much more when I was a kid. OK, I'm Aunt Lois's age. And in all seriousness, there were less attention problems then.

  2. Wow - great reference, interesting post. where I live, we have MO day school that has received a grant to address just these issues - they are doing remarkable things. thanks for the link - i am going to post it on my site. this topic is of special interest to me.
