We are the official APU Teach For America page! Our vision is that one day all students will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education
In America today, a gap in academic achievement separates kids in low-income communities from their higher-income peers. This limits life options, affects families and communities, and has significant social and economic implications for our country.
Although 15 million children face the extra challenges of poverty, an increasing body of evidence shows they can achieve at the highest levels. We c...an provide an excellent education for kids in low-income communities.
Teach For America is the national corps of outstanding recent college graduates and professionals who commit to teach for two years in urban and rural public schools and become lifelong leaders in the effort to expand educational opportunity. This year, more than 9,300 corps members are teaching 600,000 students in 43 low-income communities across the country. Nearly 24,000 Teach For America alumni are working from inside and outside the field of education to effect the changes needed to close the achievement gap
This is why we believe that there is so much potential at Azusa Pacific University. We want to encourage you to really be plugged in with our events on campus and to raise awareness about educational inequity.
