THE HEART IS THE TEACHER by Leonard Covello

THE HEART IS THE TEACHER

KIRKUS REVIEW

Leonard Covello, an Italian immigrant, was well equipped to work and teach within the Italian community of East Harlem. His achievements -- night school for adults, store-front recreation centers, the use of native languages to speed the process of assimilation, the founding of the first city high-school Italian department, his career as principal of Benjamin Franklin High School-- as accounted in this reflection of forty-five years of dedication, should be helpful and inspiring to those facing contemporary problems of education and recreation in ""trouble areas"".
