Many Peoples, One Language
The WPA Adult Education
program of the 1930s and 40s teamed with
New York City's Board of Education to sponsor
free English classes to help parents “learn
to speak, read, and write the language of
your children.” In addition, naturalization
classes and “special classes for educated
foreign born” are advertised on this Yiddish and English poster.
in English!: Learn to Speak,
Read & Write the Language of our Children.
