On February 8th, help Teach For America start a national discussion. Post to your Facebook wall: Current research suggests that only 8% of children growing up in poverty will graduate from college by the age of 24. You have the power to change this. Apply by this FRIDAY at www.teachforamerica.org!
There are many organizations dedicated to service, but Teach For America is specifically dedicated to the service of closing the achievement gap. I decided to join the movement and hope that others will be encouraged to join as well.
