Toward Educational Revolution? presents an original and innovative analysis of the education reform and examines its historical aspects. The book grew out of the Van Leer Educational Conference that focused on the Dovrat Report.
Is this indeed an education revolution?
The varied papers in this book examine in depth some of the premises on which the Dovrat Report is based and hold up a critical mirror to its weave of recommendations that seek to radically change the rules of the game in the Israeli education system. The reader is invited to an original and critical discussion that can help the education system’s leaders and the general public understand the benefits and dangers of the Dovrat Report.
The fascinating diversity of views and opinions in Toward Educational Revolution? renews the public and professional discourse, which requires the continued cooperation of those active on all fronts for the good of Israel’s education system. The book includes the work of thirty-two authors, representing a broad spectrum of leading experts in a variety of disciplines, such as economics, social sciences, philosophy, and education, and including members of the National Education Action Force, holders of key positions in education, and educators in various sectors.
