History of Immigrant Female Students in Chicago Public Schools, 1900-1950

Series:

Stephanie Nicole Robinson

History of Immigrant Female Students in Chicago Public Schools, 1900-1950 examines issues of Americanization, immigration, and school response through the eyes of Irish, Italian, Polish, and Jewish immigrant female students – four of Chicago’s major immigrant communities. One of the book’s conclusions is that gender and the lack of opportunity to attend school affected educational attainment more than ethnic differences.
