Society of Sisters 268 U.S 510 (1925) Historical Setting Following World War 1 most states were significantly worried about the influence of forcing and immigrant values and thus sought help from public schools. Hence these states drafted laws which adopted the use of schools to promote one common American culture. In 1922 November 7th the people of Oregon therefore passed an initiative which functioned to amend the Oregon Law section 5259 which is the compulsory education Act. The public’s aim was to remove the Catholic schools and other parochial schools and even private schools. This case was about striking down the Oregon Act which stated that all children attend public school from the ages of 8 to 16.
