Monthly Query:

Query 11: Witnessing in the World: 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 simplify my needs, making choices that balance self-sufficiency (to avoid unnecessary dependence on others) and fair sharing of resources? Do I make choices as a consumer that support the equitable distribution of income?

Do I demonstrate my encouragement and support for Friends education through awareness and service?
