Friends Council on Education
with Janet Chance & Mark Franek
 
William Penn envisioned a society dedicated to religious toleration, participatory government, and liberty. Central to this Holy Experiment was his belief that all children deserved a moral education. This book includes images from the 10 Friends schools founded in or near Philadelphia before the 20th century. Philadelphia Friends Schools uses historic images to tell the story of Friends schools' mission to develop the human capacity for love and goodwill, analysis and reflection, respect and responsibility to others—a story that has been experienced by children for more than three centuries.
