Yares, Laura – Journal of Jewish Education, 2016
The literature on Reform Jewish education in America rightly recognizes Emanuel Gamoran's work in establishing the direction of Hebrew schools in the Reform movement toward a cultural pluralism influenced by Samson Benderley et al.

Jankiewicz, Darius; Jankiewicz, Edyta – Journal of Research on Christian Education, 2016
Until the 20th century, the spiritual nurture of children was not a high priority for the Christian church.

Educational theorists ranging from Ivan Illich to Jan Masschelein and Maarten Simons have described institutionalized schooling as a modernized, secular church, full of rituals, sacraments, and various incantations. For them, the function of the teacher as priest and schooling as baptism is highly problematic, separating education from the common…
