Education and socio-economic achievements : towards an international survey of educational systems by Erik Cohen( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper represents the initial stage of a project established to describe and understand the rationale and processes of certain educational systems in Israel and other countries, and to spread the acquired knowledge as a useful practical contribution. The problem in the study is to understand the conditions prevailing and the methods to be used in attempting to raise the educational level of those countries. The project faced certain obstacles, firstly, in its theoretical basis, since the general topic of comparative education has not yet acquired a full conceptual and methodological outline, and secondly, in implementation, since the governments of the countries surveyed are the potentially interested parties. Particular attention must therefore be paid to the political dimension of the research and advisory activities. The purpose of this initial stage has been to answer two preliminary questions: (1) What are the criteria which will enable one to locate the countries with the highest rate of success in education? and (2) which are the four countries having the highest educational level to be subsequently investigated. The paper discusses comparative education including definitions and objectives of comparative education and methods and problems in the area. The survey process is described including a multi-dimensional approach, monotonous correlations, geometric data analysis, and multi-dimensional structural analysis. The study found that there is no country with a very low educational level that also has a high economic standard. A 6-page bibliography is included. A section of tables and documents presents the overall details of the similarity analysis and of the educational partial orders. (DK)
Survey of Israeli research in education, 1975-1995 by Shoshanna Langerman( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An investigation was conducted to determine how many studies have been done, and on what subjects, in the field of education in Israel over the last 20 years. The study was based on the Israeli database "Current Research in the Social Sciences in Israel," which covers education among its topics. The database includes publications in Hebrew and English, with a few in French and German. This review excludes Master's theses, but does include doctoral dissertations. In the database, there are 7,915 "education" records. Only a few predate 1975. Under the main topic "School Settings" are studies on: (1) boarding schools; (2) kibbutz education; (3) special education and mainstreaming; (4) religious education; (5) Arab education; and (6) informal education. A second main topic, "Participants in Education," encompasses studies of students, teachers, administrators, and parents. The remainder of the studies cover a range of general issues dealing with curriculum, instruction, and educational policy. Twenty-four supporting documents in Hebrew are attached. (Sld)
The effect of class heterogeneity on scholastic achievement in Israel by Victor Lavy( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the relationship between class heterogeneity and scholastic performance in Israel's primary schools. The effect of school integration on academic achievement is explained via two main effects: (1) the "peer" effect, namely externalities that are induced by the composition of the teaching and learning environments; and (2) the efficiency effect, which reflects the reduced ability of the teacher to teach and the pupil to learn in a heterogeneous environment. This study focuses on the efficiency effect and estimates an upper bound to the "peer" effect. The raw, strong negative correlation between achievement and class heterogeneity is clearly an artifact of the association between more heterogeneous classes and lower socioeconomic status among pupils. A liberalization in the education system allowing parents more freedom in choosing an elementary school for their child is seen to be positive in terms of schooling efficiency and the implied gains in scholastic achievement. This liberalization effort is weighed against the setback in the efforts to achieve social integration through the education system and the implied, but unmeasured, benefits. (Eh)
Israel's education system : an introduction to a study program by Daniel J Elazar( Book )

2 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reports on a program to develop a comprehensive overall strategy of educational research that deals with the state of education in Israel. Four dimensions or sets of demands on the schools are discussed: (1) civilizational demands of transmission of heritage and culture; (2) social demands for good citizenship, productive workers, up to date skills, and perpetuation of civil society; (3) parental demands for the ability to make a living, perpetuation of their way of life, and happiness; and (4) individual student demands for happiness, self expression, and the ability to make a living and fit in. All these demands find expression in the educational system through the mediation of the professional educators responsible for the day to day working of the system: classroom teachers, principals, and senior professionals. Israel's education system is ranked as nursery, elementary, secondary schools, and terciary (or university, teachers, state religious, independent, and vocational colleges). While in terms of variety of options Israel's education system ranks very high, there is considerable dissatisfaction with the system as it is operating. That dissatisfaction has expressed itself in connection with a number of critical issues. They include the problems of a common core curriculum that will unite the various ideological trends and subtrends, how minorities are treated within the system, the problem of the gap between disadvantaged or culturally deprived children and those who are not, problems of equalization, questions of what is taught and how effectively it is learned, and to what extent supplementary education is needed.
