Earlier today, I received word that the Spencer Foundation has approved my request for a $25,000 grant to fund the research component of the program I shall be running at Bennett College. Dania Francis will be conducting the research. This is a small but essential first step in what I hope will be a series of grants to underwrite the Bennett project. The distinguished sociologist Christopher Jencks was instrumental in making contact for me with the Spencer Foundation. "Lifting as we climb."
