Enhancing Immigrant Schools in New York City


AVI CHAI supported the improvement of instruction at schools servicing immigrant students in New York City. After funding direct grants to a few elementary and high schools, our current funding supports the continued participation of three schools in the Gruss Life Monument Foundation’s computer-assisted learning program, focusing on raising the students’ general studies abilities and test scores, primarily in reading, writing and math. Rabbi Yoel Kramer led the Teacher Fellowship Program, a teacher in-service training program, as a means of improving pedagogy in both Judaic and secular classrooms. Six cohorts of teachers completed this program, which ended in spring 2009.
