I found this among my grandmother’s possessions after she passed away.
This certificate has the date 9/23/19 handwritten in the corner and was stamped “Issued, Bureau of Compulsory Education, 1522 Cherry St., Phila.” My grandmother was working at a hosiery mill by January 1920, according to the census. My guess is that this certificate was obtained so that she could leave school and go to work.
