Teach for America – Fight educational inequity!

Posted by sedwardyang on December 20, 2007

• Only half of the 13 million children growing up in low-income areas graduate from high-school by the time they are 18.
• Of those who do graduate, they are performing, on average, at the level of eighth graders in wealthy communities.
• Only one out of ten actually goes on to graduate from college.

Millions of children in the United States are receiving a substandard education. Given this huge inequity in our privileged nation, how can Christians help eliminate this injustice?

Teach For America is one way to serve and empower low-income children. Teach For America is a national education non-profit that recruits recent outstanding college graduates to teach for two years in our nation’s most under-resourced schools. This year, nearly 4,400 corps members are teaching in over 1,000 schools in 25 regions across the country and they are having a tangible impact on student achievement. More than 12,000 Teach For America alumni continue working from inside and outside the field of education for the fundamental changes necessary to ensure educational excellence and equity. Teach For America alumni become life-long advocates for education and justice – many of them stay in teaching, but they’ve also gone on to start charter schools, run urban school districts, fight for educational and economic equity through law and public policy, and start health care clinics to provide better health care options to people in low-income communities.

Many Christians are looking for ways to put their faith in action. Fighting educational inequity is one of the most powerful ways we can level the playing field in our nation. To learn more about how Teach For America is part of the movement to eliminate educational inequity, visit: http://www.teachforamerica.org/landing/welcome_fbo.htm.
