On March 8, Teach For All moderated a panel discussion featuring representatives from network partners Teach For India and Enseña Chile at the Comparative and International Education Society Conference (CIES) in Atlanta, Georgia. The conference gathered leading authorities in education, including researchers, practitioners, and policymakers, to discuss the problem of inequality.
From November 9-11, 2016, Teach For All network partners from Argentina, Ecuador, Chile, and Peru gathered in Córdoba, Argentina, with Deutsche Post DHL Group employees from across Latin America for the fourth GoTeach Conference, an opportunity to celebrate DPDHL Group’s partnership with Teach For All.
The final day of the 2016 Teach For All Global Conference began with the event’s annual “Network Breakthroughs” session, featuring innovations that were successfully pioneered by network partners this year.
Teach For All and Deutsche Post DHL Group have extended their partnership for an additional three years, reaffirming their commitment to ensuring all children have the opportunity to attain an excellent education, regardless of background or economic status.
In the communities where they teach, Teach For All participants across the network are working with parents and community members to ensure their students are learning and thriving, inside and outside the classroom.
As a participant with Enseña Chile, Juan Paulo Sánchez understood for the first time the depths of educational inequity in Chile. The small town where he taught was among the country’s lowest income communities, where just one in five of his students was likely to attend university.
Seven projects led by alumni from across the network were selected for an eight-week Teach For All/Co.Creator accelerator program for entrepreneurs launching or operating social enterprises. The alumni and their organizations were chosen for their innovative approaches to expanding educational opportunity in their countries.
Since the launch of the partnership in 2011, Deutsche Post DHL Group’s support of Teach For All and select network partners has also included opportunities for DPDHL Group employees to be actively engaged in their company’s goal of living responsibility and commitment to education. Throughout the year, in now 11 countries around the world, DPDHL Group employees directly engage with the staff, participants, alumni, and students of Teach For All partner organizations.
