Continuing our series highlighting SFF Foundation partners, this January we spotlight Teach For America, who joined as a scholarship partner last year. The program has been a pacesetter in education reform for more than 20 years in Houston. Schools in Houston’s lowest income areas have had the honor of nearly 2,000 Teach For America corps members teaching since 1991. The Foundation and Teach For America both believe strongly that educational opportunities should not be determined by a student’s family income or their neighborhood.
