Eyes Wide Shut

At the Annual Torah Umesorah Convention educators (mechancim) from around the country gathered to discuss the state of our yeshivas, to share professional tips, and to hear words of instruction and inspiration from the masters of the trade.

The rundown:

Number of times Kolko was mentioned: 0
Number of sessions or speechs about identifying and preventing child abuse: 0

Brilliant suggestion from Rav Shteinman (who we last saw ensconced in the first class section of an El Al jet: Teachers of Torah should not play ball with their students

[FWIW my all-time favorite teacher of Talmud would regularly play basketball with us at recess, and my second favorite teacher of Talmud would make a few appearences each spring on the softball diamond. Boy, could he send it.]

Another brilliant suggestion from Rav Shteinman: Class trips are a waste of time.

May I be the first to say it? (The first to say it today, I mean)

These emperors have no clothes.
