Well said- especially at least the womens salary should be equal to the men

That may not bode well for women

Corporate America’s equal-pay argument is that a man and a woman who have the same amount of higher education, the same amount of experience and have the job titles should receive equal pay. In our Chassidishe world, men usually have four – six years of higher education during which time they obtain Semicha. Whereas women usually only have one – two years of seminary. So it might not be in everyone’s best interest to push for an official comparison.

Men don’t have 4-6 years of higher education

Smeicha is a 1.5 – 2 year program. Whereas seminary is 1-2 years. Women, post seminary girls often teach in a classroom setting. Many women teachers have many years of experience teaching Hebrew School in Chabad houses. Whereas men do not have the same experience. Furthermore, for a first grade teacher you don’t need a teacher with smeicha. It is unfair to choose to pay men more than women on the basis of that basis alone.

Amazing

Finally we’re not putting just anyone just out of kolel to educate our kids.

Thank you

Wow thank you for taking on this initiative! So needed and I’m sure this will help the teacher shortage.

Chinuch is Shlichus

Bochurim should be tought that going into chinuch is fully what the Rebbe wants. Working in or opening a Chabad house isn’t the only option a yungerman should have in mind. I think this will help the melamdim shortage.

K-12 teachers, women and men, should be the highest-paid profession. Our future depends on them. And our Judaic teachers, especially so, as our souls depend on them. Every day, may you feel the kiss of heaven upon you! Yasher koach!

Chinuch=Shlichus

The original “shluchim” of the Frierdiker rebbe both in Russia and in America were shluchim sent to open schools. Chinuch is the original Shlichus.

It’s true that our graduates are not interested in teaching. Yeshivas everywhere are struggling to find teachers.
This is a much needed program.
To those who suggest a higher salary, that’s a great idea but parents complain about every dollar they have to pay so where is this money coming from?
