One Day, All Children
Wendy Kopp, signed by author
From her dorm room at Princeton University, twenty-one-year-old college senior Wendy Kopp decided to launch a movement to improve public education in America. In ‘One Day, All Children’, she shares the remarkable story of Teach for America, a non-profit organization that sends outstanding college graduates to teach for two years in the most under-resourced urban and rural public schools in America. The astonishing success of the program has proven it possible for children in low-income areas to attain the same level of academic achievement as children in more privileged areas and more privileged schools. ‘One Day, All Children’ is not just a personal memoir. It’s a blueprint for the new civil rights movement- a movement that demands educational access and opportunity for all American children.
