New team starts work on schools
A new team has been selected to put into action the recommendations of the Jewish Leadership Council's Commission on Jewish Schools.
Leading communal figures and experts in a variety of areas have been assembled by Leo Noé, the JLC member in charge.
The first tasks are the Redbridge Community Change project, a full investigation into the provision for special-educational-needs children, and the implications of strictly Orthodox community schools becoming voluntary-aided.
Businessman David Ereira will chair special education; Jonathan Goldstein will head the Redbridge group. Rabbi Jonathan Guttenberg from Manchester will be liaise with the strictly Orthodox community.
