Teachers (Melamdim) and Educators (Mehankhim)--Who Are We? Implications for Professionalizing Orthodox Jewish Education.
This paper puts forth an argument for new lines of inquiry and deliberation in the process of professionalizing Orthodox Jewish education. Using professionalization to describe a process that emanates from within the profession and its practitioners, and not issues (such as salary, benefits, and status) which are largely controlled by those working outside of the profession. The paper argues for the development of a Jewish theory of education as a hallmark of enriching a communal endeavor enabling educators to fulfill the decree of walking in His ways as they educate the Jewish people.
