The Jewish Report Editorial

Education in focus

  • Vanessa
After the recent chaos and disruption on university campuses across the country, we focus in on tertiary education. It is not surprising that South African Jews are concerned for their children’s futures and considering alternatives to the local universities. Immigration or at least sending children abroad if opportunity and resources allow, have long formed part of our narrative.

In this supplement, Jewish Report looks at educational realities and questions people are asking, the views of educators and university representatives and what they are advising students. We also investigate the options of private tertiary education in this country as well as studying abroad. We even hear from one black student with ties to the Jewish community, Jamie Mithi, who implores young Jewish people to stay in the country.

There is also, of course, a large focus on study in Israel which has numerous opportunities as well as funding options that make studying there for Jewish youth a real possibility. And we highlight four of the major Israeli universities who offer amazing academic programmes and a student experience abroad.

This section is not about advising people what to do in these uncertain times, but about giving people information and reassuring them that there are exciting options.
