In Contemporary Jewry 13, 22-39. The Critique misjudges the Study's (Jewish Supplementary Schooling) purpose and procedures, confuses cross-sectional and longitudinal research and misreads its recommendations. Basically the Study is a comparison between avowed and achieved goals. Nowhere does the Critique fault the study in this regard.
