Teach for America to add 230 teachers in Houston
— Houston Business Journal
More than 230 new teachers will be in place, up 15 percent from last year.
The new teachers will form an active Houston corps of more than 400
first- and second-year teachers who will reach 32,000 students during
the 2008-09 year.
This year’s growth is made possible in part by a $1 million commitment from Laura and John Arnold in support of Teach For America‘s presence in the Houston area.
