As the brainchild of Kopp while studying at Princeton, in 1989, Teach For America works for equity in American classrooms and recruits some of the brightest college graduates to take on the task of teaching.
From beginning as a social entrepreneurship startup with a shoestring budget, Teach for America is now an enterprise-size organization with net assets in the hundreds of millions of dollars. Kopp is also CEO and co-founder of Teach For All, a global network of social enterprises that seeks to adapt the Teach For America model internationally.
