Yet she found herself searching for a chance to make a difference in the world, and she sensed that she was not alone.

From her dorm room at Princeton University, Wendy developed a plan to call upon the most talented members of her generation to teach for two years in the nations neediest urban and rural public schools. She envisioned a new national service corps called Teach For America that would heighten our countrys commitment to its most disadvantaged children. One Day, All Children...is the story of one young social entrepreneur and her dream for a better America.

It reveals the struggles of an organization created by and for young idealists. But more importantly, it explores the growth of a new civil rights movement, a movement that demands equal educational opportunity for all Americans. Wendys vision is that one day, all children in this nation will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education. In this book, she shows us that we can make her vision a reality.--BOOK JACKET.
