UK Jewish Schools out perform competition

The 33 Jewish primary and secondary schools in the United Kingdom outperform their state equivalents, as well as other "faith schools", in every major subject, according to London Schools Minister Stephen Twigg, the UK Jewish Chronicle reports.

With regard to secondary schools, the minister noted that the gap was even larger. On Britain's national GCSE exams, Twigg said, the pass rate at Jewish schools was 78 percent versus just 49 percent in other state schools.
