The author takes issue with some common proposals to fill the funding gap for Jewish education. Fundraising and tuition support discussions are valuable, the author contends, yet neither focuses adequately on the real issue of making quality education accessible to all and through different venues. The author argues that solutions must take into account the entire continuum of education delivery, not just day schools.
