The enormity of the role of literacy in academic success and religious connection
requires educators to ensure that each student is best prepared in the area of literacy, and, in
the Orthodox Jewish community, Hebrew literacy. Understanding the perspective of a
student can help an educator figure out the best way to help a student succeed, and it is thus
important for educators to recognize the experience of the educational process for students
struggling with reading. The literature discussed above explains, in part, the underlying
causes of student misbehavior and communal disconnection as it connects to literacy. With
this knowledge, educators will be able to enter the field more informed and therefore more
equipped to help their students succeed. (From Conclusion)
