New England Yearly Meeting

A community of Quakers and Quaker meetings across New England.

Racial Integration and Quaker Schools

Jun 20, 1947

(following reports of Moses Brown, Lincoln, and Oak Grove Schools)
“Concern was expressed that the Yearly Meeting schools include children of all races in their school family; that members of the Meeting visit the schools and encourage young Friends to attend them; that Friends in evaluating education in Quaker Schools judge when it is most useful to the child in relation to his home and meeting.”
