Got Teachers?

Early childhood education conference brings Jewish teacher shortage issue to light.


The Shirettes, five peppy women clad in jeans and T-shirts, sang a good morning song complete with hand motions, as one of them strummed along on a guitar. The audience applauded heartily -- only instead of the local singing group's usual nursery school audience, the crowd consisted of the teachers of their regular fans. The singers kicked off the 22nd annual Early Childhood Institute with an air of youthful enthusiasm that lasted throughout the conference, which was sponsored by the Bureau of Jewish Education (BJE) of Greater Los Angeles, a beneficiary agency of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles.
