Education Board Bans Italian Textbook

Download PDF for this date

An Italian textbook, “Aniamo in Italia,” used in the New York Public School system since 1932, was banned by the Board of Education yesterday on the grounds that it discussed and praised Fascism in a propagandistic fashion. The book was written by A. Marinoni and L.A. Passarelli, both attached to the staff of the University of Arkansas when the volume was published.
