As we light the last Chanuka candle tonight, I would like to share some thoughts about the JEDLAB Facebook Group and what this network is meant to be. It was created as a place to be creative, innovative and to think out of the box. It was created to bring all different flavors of the Jewish world together to try and bring new ideas, big ideas, to make a difference in the work we do. I joined when the network was barely 2,000. It is amazing to me that we are now about to hit 10,000.

From Power Struggle to Benevolent Authority and Empathic Limit-Setting: Creating Inclusive School Practice with Excluded Students through Action Research
Teachers face a dilemma in setting limits and establishing boundaries with excluded students, who often exhibit extremely disruptive behavior that cannot be ignored or condoned. Since limit-setting through threats, sanctions, punishment, or expulsion simply reinforces the cycle of exclusion, the alternative approach presented here is to treat the breaching of boundaries as a developmental rather than a moral issue. Benevolent authority and empathic limit-setting, which lie at the core of this method, involve understanding and tending to the needs of the young person while at the same time clearly defining the necessary boundaries and positively reinforcing students for maintaining them.
