Simon Family Foundation Pledges its Support for Civic Literacy
Our Center for Civic Literacy recently received a $25,000 grant from the Simon Family Foundation to study the gap in civics education available to students in wealthy and poor neighborhoods.
“There are so many things we don’t know about the distressing deficit of civic knowledge,” stated our Executive Director, Sheila Kennedy. “One of the most troubling aspects of the decline in both civic literacy and civic engagement is unequal access to civic opportunities and instruction. We are so grateful to the Herbert Simon Family Foundation for enabling us to study and analyze that problem.”
