This week, The Greek Star newspaper in Chicago, the oldest continuously published Greek newspaper in the United States, published an issue dedicated to Greek-American Education.
With articles written predominantly by area Greek school principals and educators, the paper focuses on issues relating to Greek-American Education, at all levels, from preschool through adult learning. The keepsake issue also includes a directory of Greek schools in Illinois, Southern Wisconsin and Northwest Indiana.
Topics include choosing a school, the benefits of a bilingual education; dispelling the myth that day schools are simply ‘Greek schools’; about the Archdiocese efforts to rewrite Greek school textbooks tailored to the needs of Greek-American students; the Ellinomathia proficiency examinations; a new certification program for Greek teachers at Northeastern Illinois University and more.
The subscription-only publication has served as the voice of Chicago’s Hellenic community since 1904.
