Teach for America

Teach for America seeks to fulfill the following aim: “one day, all children in this nation will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education.” It does this through attempting to “eliminate educational inequity by developing such leaders.” Its staff comprises new college graduates and professionals from all fields – who are thereafter given specific training – to teach for two years in urban and rural public schools. It is anticipated that in the 2012-13 academic year, over 10,000 corps members will teach 750,000 students while almost 28,000 alumni will continue to expand their impact as educational leaders and advocates.
