 Query for the Fifth Month -- Education

  • What is our Meeting’s role in the life and support of Friends’ education? If supporting or maintaining a Friends school, have we developed an appropriate relationship of Meeting and school? What is our role in the spiritual life of the school and its maintenance of Friends’ principles?
  • What does our Meeting do to support education in the wider community?
  • What help do we provide for the children and adults in our Meeting to pursue the education they seek, whether academic, technical, or vocational? Do we make provision for children in our Meeting to attend a Friends school?
  • How do I show my concern for the improvement of public education in my community and in the world?
  • Am I aware of what Friends schools are doing and of their plans for the future? How do I show encouragement and support?
