The objective of the following research was to convey data to understand, to what extent did Czechoslovak immigrants influence the building of the Chicago public school system, and in turn, how the immigrants changed as the result of their participation within the public school system of Chicago. Information is presented to investigate links between the Czechoslovak immigrants, the city of Chicago, and the public school system. Reports, letters, archival documents, and histories are presented in an attempt to uncover connections between the variables: public schools, immigrants, and host society. The historical narrative method was used to process and present the data collected. The aim of the study was to identify where and how an immigrant sub-culture can influence the direction of educational policy in a large metropolitan area. In doing so it would be useful to take these findings and transfer them to modern educational issues of minority disenfranchisement through broad macro-level educational policy decisions and mandates.Table 18 (continued) Chicago Czechoslovaks in Technology and Education, 1855-1932 Name Birth Place/Date Education Accomplishments Radesinsky, Dr Anton Kostelec nad Orlici, Imperial University of CZ 1867 Vienna (PhD) 1894anbsp;...
