Question on how to Handle New Office Policy Regarding Public Schools

Question on how to Handle New Office Policy Regarding Public Schools
Date: 
August 5, 1890

Richard Henry Pratt forwards a clip from the Washington Evening Star regarding a policy change that the Office of Indian Affairs will pay $10 per quarter for Indian students attending public schools. Pratt notes that he was going to publish this clip in the school newspaper but refrained due to fear that patrons would object to taking Carlisle students and ask for public schools in Pennsylvania to also be paid.
