Canadian Jews Discuss Recruitment of Teachers for Small Communities

Plans for recruiting qualified Jewish teachers for small communities in this province were discussed here by a special subcommittee on Jewish education and a study group on recruitment, training and placement of teachers in the less populated Jewish communities in Ontario. Representatives of the Jewish educational boards participated in the meeting. The subcommittee is headed by Dr. Joseph Diamond.

Among the ways and means discussed were: Proper salary scales, fringe benefits, scholarships for students in teacher-training schools, and recruitment of newcomers to the Hebrew teaching profession from Israel and other countries. A full report on the plans will be submitted at the ninth regional conference on Jewish education to be held at Hamilton, Ont., on November 24.
