Teach For America
Commission AmeriCorps State Fixed Amount Grants FY 2011
Teach For America-Oklahoma's mission is to enlist our nation's most promising future leaders in the movement to eliminate educational inequity. TFA-OK believes that the gap in educational outcomes that persists along socioeconomic and racial lines is our greatest domestic challenge, and that it in order to live up to our nation's ideals, we must ensure that all children have access to an excellent education. TFA-OK achieves this by building a diverse, highly selective national corps -- of all academic majors and career interests -- who commit at least two years to teaching in urban and rural public schools in our nation's lowest-income communities, and then become lifelong leaders in expanding educational opportunity.
