Check this out: “Teach for All” Program

 

Teach for America has gone global!

I don’t care if there has been a lot of criticism of Teach for America lately. The truth is that it is a GREAT organization with a fantastic goal of getting good education into the minds of those who need it most. Of course there are going to be problems and disapproval, especially in America where everyone thinks it’s ok to give their opinion about everything.

This global initiative is SO important. In many countries, teachers are not well educated nor well paid, so the best and the brightest never choose this career path. As well, the teaching materials are awful and poor schools are horribly overlooked usually because no one really cares about these communities. I think this will give hundreds of people who actually give a damn and who have the connections to make a change, a chance to speak up for those who desperately need it. Many times, that’s all they really need.
