There may be an elephant in the room. Many rebbeim are hired to teach after receiving minimal or no training in education. Perhaps we need a better system for educating the rebbeim to be great teachers in the first place.
This is much less of a problem in girl’s education where most teachers receive some teacher training.July 12, 2017 1:52 pm at 1:52 pm in reply to: Every Menahels Difficult Dillema, the underperforming career rebbi. #1315913
morahmom, yes that was my point!! Your comment was still awaiting moderation when I posted.
Rabbeim must be trained as educators!
I may be skewered for this idea … but wouldn’t someone who sits and learns for over 10 years be expecting to stay in klei kodesh, not go to the regular workforce? Maybe there should be better planning and advice for kollel guys at about years 5-7 in kollel … presumably they are barely 30 and can either head for training and work at that point or continue on in avodas hakodesh.
As a non-sheitel hair covering woman, I’ve wondered the question of the opening poster many times. Basically, I think most frum people do most things just because that’s the way their community does it. It is hard to be different. That said, I personally would rather spend our family’s money (what little there is of it) on other things. I have heard many times over the years that imitating hair, looking to score a ten with men other than your husband, and trying to fit into a goyishe appearance are each negative in their own way. The only support I have heard for the sheitel that makes any sense to me is that good soldiers in ths army wear the uniform. Even then many good soldiers opt for a quite modest, less attractive, synthetic and shorter sheitel (priced closer to filling the tank of their 15-seater than a new refrigerator).
