(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Uniform examinations for all Hebrew schools in Boston and vicinity was decided upon at the last meeting of the Principals’ Association.

A committee was appointed to prepare details in connection with the carrying out of this plan. The committee consists of Louis Hurwich, superintendent. Bureau of Jewish Education; Samuel Pitlik, principal. Hebrew Educational Alliance. Roxbury; A. Rashish. principal. Cambridge Hebrew-School; Mr. Schlossberg, principal. Lynn Hebrew School; C. H. Waldman, principal. Beth El Hebrew School. Dorchester.

It was pointed out at the meeting that through the new plan principals and teachers will be enabled to know through objective tests how much they have accomplished every semester. These tests will also indicate elements in the work which need particular attention. The rate of progress will also be indicated and those standards based upon actual work will be developed.

The same program in the Boston schools is to be adopted by the Hebrew schools in Lynn. Revere. Worcester and other cities.

The same examinations will also be given to these schools. The graduates will be eligible for advanced study at the Hebrew Teachers’ College.
