Parent-teacher Congress Urges Fostering of Tolerance

Download PDF for this date

Fostering of religious and racial tolerance in American homes and schools was recommended last night by the National Congress of Parents and Teachers in a nine-point program adopted as the major objective of the activities of the organization for the coming year. More than 28,000 Parent-Teacher Associations with a membership of 2,500,000 were represented at the Congress.

“We recommend,” says the resolution, “that tolerance be fostered in home and school by a conscious effort to appreciate the background and contributions of other social and racial groups.”
