Summary: Mapping the Landscape: The Emerging Field of Israel Education follows up on a 2003 study by the Gilo Family Foundation that called for “Israel Education to become a field in its own right—with the requisite development of a curricular approach, systemized training, professionalization and the creation of a ‘central address’ to coordinate and streamline this process.”
Over the past decade, a series of indicators point to a developing response to that call. Though much work remains to be done, it seems legitimate to identify the emergence of a field of Israel Education that encompasses clear definitions, foundational principles, professional development frameworks and twenty-first century educational expertise.
A full articulation of these areas is found in the report. In addition, strategic goals that would represent significant advancement of the field are identified.
