Teach For America: A Leadership Pipeline
Support from FedEx was crucial to bringing Teach For America to Memphis in 2006. Two years later, Teach For America has placed over 150 corps members in Memphis City Schools and has become a leadership pipeline for schools and administration in the district. Nearly 15% of all principals in Washington, D.C. are Teach For America alumni as is the Chancellor of schools, Michelle Rhee. By 2010, Teach For America will have nearly 800 school leaders across the country.
