Scope and content

The 27-page report "The professional preparation and placement of Cuban refugee teachers" was written by Herbert W. Wey and John F. Newport and published by the University of Miami in 1964.  It was published under a grant from the United States Office of Education.

During the spring and summer of 1963, a pilot project for the professional preparation and placement of Cuban refugee teachers was conducted at the University of Miami.  It enabled thirty-two of the thirty-four Cuban refugees who were in the program to be employed as regular teachers in the Dade County (Miami, Florida) schools.

The University Archives holds two copies of the report.
