Looking at what we can glean from the most innovative schools in the country has been a focus of ours during this planning stage for Yeshiva Lab School. Thanks to the Kohelet Foundation, last week Rabbi Perl and I had the opportunity to visit six fascinating constructivist schools in the San Diego area. As our goal is to make Yeshiva Lab School a national model for applying the very best pedagogical practices to the world of Yeshiva Day School education, I wanted to share with you Rabbi Perl’s recently published reflections on our trip. I invite you to share with me your thoughts in the comments on what we saw and what we learned.
