Why join us? New Orleans is home to tremendous inequality along lines of race and socio-economic status -- a reality tied to the systematic failure to provide equal educational opportunities for students in low-income communities. The city's poverty rate is more than twice as high among African-Americans as whites, and there is a 42 percent gap in math and reading proficiency between black and white students. You have the power to change this.Teach For America enlists a diverse corps of leaders who commit to teach for two years in urban and rural public schools across the country and become lifelong advocates in the effort to expand educational opportunity in and out of the classroom. Our corps members, who receive a full salary and benefits, use their numerous skills and experiences from their varied work, leadership, and academic backgrounds to effect change in their classroom and help break the cycle of inequity that prevents students from fulfilling their potential. Sign up here to learn more about the corps, benefits, training, where and what you can teach, and the application timeline. The final application deadline for the 2013 corps is Friday, February 15th. No education coursework or certification required: candidates of all professional backgrounds, academic majors, and career interests are encouraged to apply. A bachelor's degree is required.
