The Ivy League and Teach For America are intimately tied. Teach For America, after all, was born in the Ivy League when its founder, Wendy Kopp, wrote her senior thesis at Princeton University on starting a national teaching corps. We figured we’d follow up our blog on what Brown University grads plan to do after graduation (a striking percentage joined Teach For America) with a post on where new members of Teach For America are graduating from. The organization tends to recruit a lot of its members out of prestigious universities and many grads find the experience of working in struggling schools rather appealing and rewarding after graduation.
