What kind of article are you looking for? One from a scholarly journal? One from an online journal? One from a newspaper? You need to define "article" in order to narrow your search.

The best place to search for journal articles about education is eric.edu.gov. For instance, I did a basic search for the key words education in 1930s. A few of the titles I found are "Transitory Connections: The Reception and Rejection of Jean Piaget's Psychology in the Nursery School Movement in the 1920s and 1930s"; "Tomorrow We Live: Fascist Visions of Education in 1930s Britain"; and "The Bad Old Days: How Higher Education Fared during the Great Depression."

With Eric, however, you may need be able to read the entire article. It will give you all the bibliographic information so that you can find the journal in a library.

You might also check out the US Dept. of Education web site. You can also search for the key words "education in the 1930s" and get several results. I found an article titled "A Brief History of Teacher Professionalism," which compares teacher training today to methods used in the 1920s and 1930s.

I hope this helps you. Good luck in your search!

Not a particular article but I do know a few places you can look. Go to WWW.ERIC.GOV and type in a search for what you are look for.  Another place to look is in GOOGLE, once you go there hit the MORE tab and click on SCHOLAR and you can look for articles for the era there.

Hope that helps.
