Day 356: Teach for America
Teachers are one of most important assets to the success of our future generations, their dedication to educate our children is often a thankless job. I tip my hat to those new teachers who join Teach for America, to expand educational in communities in need of the brightest educators.
Teach For America is the national corps of outstanding recent college graduates of all academic majors and career interests who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools and become leaders in the effort to expand educational opportunity.
Their mission is to build the movement to eliminate educational inequity by enlisting our nation’s most promising future leaders in the effort.
In the short run, the corps members work relentlessly to ensure that more students growing up today in our country’s lowest-income communities are given the educational opportunities they deserve. In the long run, TFA alumni are a powerful force of leaders working from inside education and from every other sector to effect the fundamental changes needed to ensure that all children have an equal chance in life.
