Teach for America has a “moral imperative to grow” in size and influence, writes founder Wendy Kopp. Plenty of smart college graduates want to try teaching.
In a growing economy, when jobless claims are at the lowest point in four years, Teach For America has received a record 17,000 applicants. Twelve percent of the senior classes of Yale and Spelman, 11 percent of Dartmouth’s senior class, 9 percent of the senior classes of Princeton and Harvard, and 4 percent of the University of Michigan’s senior class have chosen to compete to join Teach For America.
