Partnerships with school operators to implement clinical teaching
In Israel, local authorities, school networks and Ministry of Education districts are the entities responsible for the high schools. These proprietary and supervisory relationships play a reciprocal role with schools in the definition of objectives, allocation of resources, measuring progress and giving feedback. Particularly in the fields of mathematics and science, in which there is a lack of teachers, science infrastructure and equipment, a collaborative approach of shared vision has the opportunity to pool resources and create a multiplying effect.
For this purpose, the foundation is partnering with local authorities, networks and districts that have defined ambitious, specific goals for the advancement of excellence in mathematics and science, and are prioritizing and dedicating resources to this issue. These partnerships focus on the growth of clinical teaching, by appointing a senior teachers to lead professional communities of teachers, building individualized learning plans for each student, and executing rigorous feedback loops.
