Query for the Eleventh Month – Education

  • What does our meeting do to support and improve public education?
  • What help do we provide for the children and adults in our meeting to pursue their educational goals?
  • What is our meeting’s role in support for Friends’ education? If our meeting is connected to a Friends school or schools, does this relationship nurture spiritual life and the manifestation of Friends principles?
  • Do we enable children in our meeting to attend a Friends school? Does our meeting work with the family to consider all available means of support?
  • How do I show my concern for the improvement of public education in my community?
  • Do I demonstrate my encouragement and support for Friends education through awareness and service?
