60 Nazi Teachers Study U.S. Schools

Download PDF for this date

Sixty German school teachers, members of the National Socialistic Teachers’ Association, chosen by the Hitler government to study American school methods, yesterday visited New York’s largest high school, George Washington, where they showed some interest in the academic system, but more in the sky line and women’s fashions.

The party was in charge of Professor Dr. G. Raum of Munich and Dr. Otto Breunig of Berlin.

Dr. Raum, after visiting the school, declared there is much to be learned from the American system, but there are also some things which the Germans could teach our local pedagogues.
