    Dear Friends and Supporters,
    2011 was a banner year for Teach For America. As we close out
    the fiscal year, I want to step back to reflect on the progress we’ve
    made and what it will take to fulfill our potential as a leadership
    force for ensuring that one day, in our lifetimes, all of our nation’s
    children will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education.


    Thanks to the investments of our national and regional champions, our largest
    and most diverse corps in recent history began teaching in the fall, selected from a
    record-breaking 48,000 applications. A total of more than 9,000 corps members in
    43 regions reached more than 600,000 students in the 2011-2012 school year.
        As the result of our efforts to ensure that more of our teachers share the

    backgrounds of their students, 34 percent of 2011 corps members identified as
    people of color, 31 percent were Pell
    Grant recipients, and 22 percent were first
    generation college graduates.                             More than 9,000 corps
        We continue to make progress advancing

    our teachers’ impact in the classroom.

    graduates’ effect on student performance                  2011-2012 school year.
    last year, Teach For America came out at
    the top. Still, we’re working hard to increase
    teacher effectiveness through a number of initiatives. We’ve been implementing a
    better measurement system, revising the curriculum of our training institutes, and
    developing new options for ongoing coaching and support of corps members.
        At the same time, we see increasing evidence of the long-term impact of
    the Teach For America experience in shaping lifelong leaders for change. In the
    most robust study to date on the subject, Harvard economist Roland Fryer and
    doctoral candidate Will Dobbie found that participating in Teach For America
    profoundly affects corps members’ actions and beliefs. They surveyed Teach For
    America applicants from 2007 and compared the responses of those just below the
    admissions bar to the responses of those just above it.

     Almost five years ago, we launched Teach For All in partnership with our colleagues
     at Teach First, the first adaptation of Teach For America’s model in the U.K. Today
     Teach For All is a truly global network with sister organizations in 24 countries
     and counting. Social entrepreneurs in every region of the world are pursuing
     educational equity with the same theory of change that Teach For America
     pioneered – and with the same sense of urgency and entrepreneurial spirit that
     characterizes our work in the U.S.
         As we close out 2011, we have fully embraced learning within a global context.
     Teach For America is strengthened and energized by our sister organizations. They
     have shown us that the problem of educational inequality is universal, enriched our
     understanding of the best ways to tackle it, and continually refresh our optimism
     and perspective on what is possible. By coming together to share our discoveries of
     what works and what doesn’t, we are accelerating our impact and creating a thriving
     global movement for educational equality.
         We made great strides towards realizing our goals in 2011, and it would not have
     been possible without your continued support. Each year I grow more optimistic that
     the day when all children receive an education that unleashes their full potential
     is within our reach. But we can’t get there without redoubling our commitment to
     living up to our most deeply held values. Thank you for taking this journey with us.
