Coordination with other Jewish schools was voted by the conference of the Jewish National Workers’ Alliance schools which ended here last night. The conference decided to continue the publication of “Kinder-welt,” the magazine issued for the school children, to revive the pedagogical magazine for the teachers, to publish a reader for the fifth and sixth years to be prepared by Solomon Weisman of Montreal, to aid the Jewish Teachers’ Seminary and to establish a national school exhibition and school archive.

The conference also agreed to establish six years as the school period, the curriculum to contain Yiddish, Hebrew, singing, Bible, history, stressing modern Jewish life, folklore, and the celebration of Jewish and workers’ holidays. The study of Hebrew is to begin at all schools not later than the second year.
