Immigrants and Disadvantaged in Israel and England: A Report to the New World Foundation.
Passow, A. Harry
The educational situation of disadvantaged groups in Israel and England is reviewed. The nature of the immigrant and disadvantaged populations, the kind and extent of schooling available, and the positions of local educational authorities and of the two governments are discussed. Also included are descriptions of various programs for disadvantaged students as well as of official and quasi-official reports. Unique to Israel are the kibbutzim (collective settlements) and the Israeli Defense Forces as educational and acculturational institutions. In England, a special situation exists as a consequence of the controversial political issue of restrictive immigration. While there has been a considerable communication flow between Israel and the United States on approaches to and studies of education for disadvantaged groups, the similarities and parallels between England and the United States warrant establishment of more systematic and comprehensive channels for a regular flow of information.
