Ethiopian higher education participation lags behind rest of Jewish population

The younger generation of Ethiopian Israelis is doing better in the fields of education and employment than the older generation, but there is still a long way to go in closing the gaps between the Ethiopian community and the rest of the country’s Jewish population in those areas.

These were the findings of a new survey by the Taub Center for Social Policy Studies in Israel, which is being released Thursday.

Taub Center researchers Hadas Fuchs and Gilad Brand put together the survey, which was entitled “Education and Employment Trends Among Ethiopian Israelis” and examined education and employment data for Israelis of Ethiopian origin between 1998 and 2011.
