Wendy Kopp's Oval Office Visit

Here's what I'm picturing. President Obama invites Wendy Kopp to the Oval Office, charms her socks off, tells her how awesome she is, and then offers a personal challenge to take Teach for America to the next level, to take the step that America needs it to take, and to turn TFA into an organization dedicated to creating a corps of insanely great career professional teachers, principals, and education professors.

What is she going to say? "No. I can't?"

I can't imagine this scene not taking place.

OK, I guess the answer to that question is "You're confusing TFA with the New Teacher Project."
