I had the opportunity to interview Wendy Kopp, Founder and CEO of Teach for America at the World Innovation Forum. Wendy is also the CEO and Founder of Teach For All, and the author of “One Day, All Children…”.
“Twenty years ago, the prevailing notion was that there was no way to eliminate educational inequality based on socio-economics in the United States. Today there are hundreds of examples of success in Teach For America.” (session summary courtesy @fhinnovation)
I’d like to share a video interview I did with Wendy during the event about innovation in education, and what she’s learned over the last 20 years of the program:
