Einstein Answers Teachers’ Protest

Download PDF for this date

Professor Albert Einstein has replied to a letter sent him by the Unemployed Teachers Association in which that body protested the appointment of his students to teaching posts, and his answer will be read to a meeting of its executive body tonight.

The letter had called upon Professor Einstein to use his influence in having five of his students withdraw from the posts in the city school system given them after special examinations.

Isadore Begun, head of the teachers organization, yesterday called upon Jacob Greenberg, newly elected associate superintendent of schools, to press for definite action by the board of superintendents in regard to 500 high school appointments included in the 1935 education budget.
