Day Schools and the End of the Melting Pot – The Arty Semite – Forward.com.

But wasn’t it naive to believe that “being a fuller Jew need never mean being a less complete American”? The growth of day schools was another nail in the coffin of the American melting pot.

A tension that is always there. I make a conscious effort to send my day school kids to camps and other groups that are not all-Jewish for these very reasons. It may not solve the problem- nothing really can. But I think being conscious of it helps. I also think that there are many people in day schools who do not see this as a problem
