Wendy KoppA Chance to Make History: What Works and What Doesn't in Providing an Excellent Education for All

Since 1990, Teach for America has been building a movement to end educational inequity in America. In her new book, its founder Wendy Kopp shares the lessons learned from the experiences of more than 25,000 teachers and alumni who have taught and led schools in low-income communities during those years. Kopp discusses A Chance to Make History: What Works and What Doesn’t in Providing an Excellent Education for All, which cuts through the noise of today’s debates to describe precisely what it will take to provide transformational education-education that changes the academic and life trajectories predicted by children’s socioeconomic backgrounds.

($25.99) PublicAffairs ISBN #978-1-58648-740-9. You can visit Wendy Kopp’s official web site as well.
