No Silver Bullets: Wendy Kopp At SXSWedu

At SXSWedu in Austin, Texas, Teach For All CEO and Co-Founder Wendy Kopp spoke about how, over her 25 years in education, she has listened as advocates have held up key after key to education success: Vouchers. Charter schools. Smaller class size. A computer for every kid. But there are no shortcuts—no silver bullets—for solving the global problem of educational inequity. We need to develop a generation of leaders with the understanding that comes from first-hand teaching experience, who will work from inside and outside of education to ensure the most marginalized children fulfill their true potential.
