Teaching obstacles documented in film
A free screening of a CNN documentary that depicts the obstacles overcome by four Teach For America corps members will be shown tonight at 7 in the Education building, Room 211.
In an effort to bridge the current achievement gap in U.S. public education, the national Teach For America organization calls upon outstanding recent college graduates of all backgrounds and academic majors to teach for two years in urban and rural public schools.
The film demonstrates the efforts of these recent graduates and draws attention to the educational injustices faced by students in underserved schools everyday. A Teach For America alumnus will facilitate the screening and will be available to answer questions.
