"Yezierska’s work provides evidence that has so far been missing from the historical record of our profession—-firsthand accounts of immigrant students who experienced the schools’ attempts to assimilate them through language under the auspices of the new, progressive approaches of the early twentieth-century schools. Ultimately, Yezierska is in dialogue with the premises that form the basis of our profession today."
