Smith, Sara – Journal of Jewish Education, 2020
The development of non-Orthodox Jewish day schools in Los Angeles in the 1970s to 1990s can be attributed to a combination of factors, including the city's geography, the deterioration of public education, court-ordered busing that began in the 1970s, and strong rabbinic personalities. Yet, as elementary day schools proliferated throughout the…

White suburbanites invoked "local control" to…

In the social sciences, public access to data is now the norm at a variety of federal agencies, such as the National Science Foundation.
