Equal School Rights Meeting

April 26, 1850

The friends of this reform met at the Belknap Street Church, and passed resolutions of surprise at the wrongful Massachusetts Supreme Court decision, including one resolution which says, in part, ” we hail with unalloyed satisfaction the fact that many parents and guardians among us are availing themselves of various means for the education of their children, independent of the present illegal exclusive system; and that, unmoved by opposition, whether from those without or within our proscribed circle, they are determined to bide their time, until an enlightened public opinion accord to them Equal School Rights.”
