Disparities in educational opportunities disproportionately impact African-American, Latino/Hispanic, and Native American children, who are three times as likely to live in a low-income area.* Only 46% of fourth graders in low-income areas can perform 'basic' math, such as adding whole numbers.  This is not for lack of potential, but for lack of opportunity. You have the power to change this.
Teach For America is the national corps of outstanding recent college graduates and working professionals - of all academic majors, backgrounds and career interests - who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools and become lifelong leaders for expanding educational opportunity for all children.
We seek outstanding individuals who possess the leadership skills and experience that will enable them to change the prospects of students growing up today and, ultimately, to effect the fundamental change in our society that will make it a place of opportunity for all.
We encourage you to apply to the 2009 Teach For America corps.
