Full description for Chance to Make History
Since 1990, Teach For America has been building a movement to end educational inequity in America. Now its founder, Wendy Kopp, shares the lessons learned from the experiences of more than 25,000 teachers and alumni who have taught and led schools in low-income communities during those years. She introduces leaders at the classroom, school, and system levels who, driven by passionate belief in their students' potential, have accomplished what most think impossible, exercising visionary leadership that sets ambitious goals and puts forth the energy and discipline to reach them.` A Chance to Make History` cuts through the noise of today's debates to describe precisely what it will take to provide transformational education--education that changes the academic and life trajectories predicted by children's socioeconomic backgrounds.
