Palestine Training Sought for Reich Jewish Teachers

Download PDF for this date

A six-month training period in Palestine would be required of all teachers in the “ghetto schools” of the Reich if demands now being pressed by a group of Jewish educators are successful.

The training of teachers for the Jewish schools is one of the most acute problems facing German Jewry. Approximately 25,000 Jewish children are now being educated in schools maintained by Jewish communities. Provision will have to be made for an additional 20,000 who are still in the public schools but segregated under administrative orders.
