Download PDF for this date

Superintendent of Schools Harold G. Campbell told 1,000 principals and supervisors at a conference on Wednesday that increased tension resulting from religious and racial differences among the 40,000 teachers in New York City’s school system had tended to undermine the morale of the instructional staff and to reflect on the education of the students.

“The tenseness among teachers on religious and racial subjects that I have been hearing about is something that we cannot have in the public schools,” Dr. Campbell said “That unrest has its effect on the student body.”
