32. You are very right in your view about investment in education making
a big difference. My nephews, who both graduated from a private day school, are both doing very well in large part as a result of their exposure to progressive and creative education. The younger one is being recruited (as a Junior) by more than 20 colleges and universities. Among them are Ivy League schools and the Naval Academy (which he visited and has decided NOT to attend.) He'll have a commitment by January 1st somewhere.

I can't speak to the specifics of helping to overcome racial barriers, but it seems to me that it would be a positive factor. Congratulations on your daughter's achievement, and in your wisdom and foresight in investing in her bright future! As an educator, it would be my fondest dream to be able to provide that level of quality education to every student, the cost be damned. :hi:
