Summit: Wendy Kopp

Bill Hybles interviewed Wendy Kopp, Founder and CEO of TEACH FOR AMERICA. This was terribly enjoyable (she was so not intimidated by Bill and that’s always fun to watch) and challenging. As a “teacher” at heart and also by profession for some years in my life, I was thrilled to hear how a vision to fix the issues in our education system is working, bit by bit.
The solution? Take the best and brightest YOUNG LEADERS and put them into the classrooms of the most challenging schools for 2 years and cast a vision for them to BE THE SOLUTION.
