One Day, All Children...: The Unlikely Triumph of Teach for America and What I Learned Along the Way Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From her dorm room at Princeton University, twenty-one-year-old college senior Wendy Kopp decided to launch a movement to improve public education in America. In One Day, All Children... , she shares the remarkable story of Teach For America, a non-profit organization that sends outstanding college graduates to teach for two years in the most under-resourced urban and rural public schools in America. The astonishing success of the program has proven it possible for children in low-income areas to attain the same level of academic achievement as children in more privileged areas and more privileged schools.

One Day, All Children… is not just a personal memoir. It's a blueprint for the new civil rights movement--a movement that demands educational access and opportunity for all American children.

Book News Annotation:

This is a paperbound edition of a 2001 book about which Book News wrote: Since its inception in 1990, the Teach for America program has placed recent college graduates in two year teaching positions in low income and rural areas. In this text, Wendy Kopp, the program's founder, recounts her experiences from developing the initial idea during her senior year at Princeton, through struggles to keep the program going, and Teach for America's current successes. The volume does not contain an index or bibliographical references. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
