  1. Bernard Kassoy Teacher News Cartoons

  1. Editorial cartoons created by artist Bernard Kassoy (1914-2008) document a time when many US policy makers were enthralled by the search for Communist Party members and sympathizers. Pithy drawings and captions produced for the New York Teacher News, a publication of the Teachers Union of the City of New York, portray students and teachers struggling with funding shortfalls, overcrowding, outdated texts, dilapidated buildings, increasing workloads, and stagnant wages, while Board of Education members focus the hunt for Communists.
