Download PDF for this date

The National Education Association’s commission for the defense of democracy through education has decided to launch a nation-wide campaign to teach tolerance in the schools and colleges in an effort to eradicate prejudice, it was learned here today. The program will be financed by a $25,000 grant from the National Education Association.

“All citizens should learn the place and importance of minority groups in American society,” the commission’s statement said. “Public schools have a distinct obligation in this respect and a failure to discharge this obligation will pave the way for grave national conflicts in the future.”
