Serving Our Children

Challenge – Nearly two-thirds of American high school students graduate from a compulsory school system entirely unprepared to compete in a global economy. Severely underperforming teachers and students are recycled through the system, dragging everyone else down. Meanwhile, good teachers are stretched to the limits, often using their own disposable income to go that extra mile—buying supplies, textbooks, extra reading material, educational field trips, and more—to offer anything that can help students see beyond widespread failure. Ambitious teachers are the real change agents to transform a broken system, and realign focus onto the students.

Investment -- Relieving ambitious teachers of unnecessary burdens allows them to focus on core competencies—teaching to achieve student performance.  GNF along with along with education experts, reformers, social entrepreneurs, and private sector executives can invest $75,000 to build and execute a business plan on creating a nationwide organization focused on teacher empowerment. Resources in the forms of grants, supplies, or help-lines could be offered to eager teachers across the country.
