Hebrew charter school to open in Minneapolis-St. Paul
A new Hebrew charter school is scheduled to open in suburban Minneapolis-St. Paul in September.
Agamim will open with kindergarten through third-grade classes, eventually continuing through eighth grade. Its principal, Miranda Morton, told the Star-Tribune that the classical approach dovetails “extraordinarily well” with Hebrew.
The Hebrew Charter School Center’s CEO, Jon Rosenberg, agreed.
“The Hebrew language requires a lot of rigor,” he was quoted as saying by the Star-Tribune. “It requires kids to learn a new code, a new language. The idea that classical education requires a lot of rigor makes a good fit with Hebrew, which also has a high but appropriate level of complexity.”
