Student population is discussed in terms of enrollment patterns, language proficiency and background, and cultural background. The curriculum section characterizes class structure, curricular objectives, learning materials, and testing and grading. Biographical data on teachers includes sex and place of birth, length of residence in the United States and in Cleveland, amount of education, and amount of time spent in the classroom per week. Part II, the directory, lists 21 EHALS schools in Cleveland: Arabic, Armenian, Bengali, Chinese, Croation, Czech, German, Hebrew, Hindu, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Slovak, Slovenian, Ukrainian, and Yiddish.
