Catching the Wave: Next Steps in Advancing the Vision-in-Practice Agenda
Pekarsky, Daniel
Journal of Jewish Education, v74 ns1 p16-28 2008
Building on insights of Seymour Fox, I explore the often-decisive role of "good timing" in the introduction of potentially powerful innovations (ideas, practices, etc.) into practical domains like education. After examining key readiness conditions that make for good timing, I argue that the field of Jewish education is in many ways now ready to take on an important reform agenda associated with becoming more vision guided, but that the leadership of educating institutions will need significant help if they are to succeed in this effort and not grow either cynical or demoralized. Within the article, I emphasize the critical need to make available to them in a timely way the human and other resources that can provide this help at a high level of quality.
