Kopp wrote her thesis on the idea of creating a national corps of recent college graduates who commit two years to teach in the neediest communities and become education leaders. This vision has grown into Teach for America, reaching more than 400,000 students this year. Where does education fall on the list of the country's priorities? Kopp provides thoughts on improving early education and expanding learning opportunities for children.
