Summary

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. She founded Teach For America, a nonprofit organization that calls upon outstanding college graduates to teach for two years in the most under-resourced urban and rural public schools and become lifelong leaders in the effort to expand educational opportunity. Teach For America has been a stunning success. Since 1990, more than 9,000 individuals have joined its ranks, impacting the lives of well over one million children. And Teach For America alumni have carried their insight and commitment onward, assuming leadership roles from within every professional sector -- from policy to law, business to education -- in the fight for change. One Day, All Children... tells the inspirational story of one young woman's tenacious grasp on a seemingly impossible dream. It reveals the struggles of an organization created by and for young idealists. But more importantly, it provides the blueprint for a new civil rights movement -- a movement that demands educational access and opportunity for all American children. Wendy's dream is that one day, all children across the nation will have the opportunity to receive an excellent education. People are listening. Book jacket.
