Teach For China is the first and only organization to pair outstanding graduates from top universities in the US and China in a long-term service initiative. Established in 2008, Teach For China is inspired by the vision that one day, all Chinese children will have access to a quality education. Teach For China takes a unique approach to eliminating educational inequity by enlisting the US and China’s most promising future leaders in the effort. In partnership with the global network Teach For All (www.teachforall.org), Teach For China recruits, selects, trains, and supports outstanding US and Chinese graduates to work side-by-side to deliver an excellent education in high poverty, rural Chinese communities.
This blog exists to share some of the stories, conveyed by Teach For China Teaching Fellows, of life on the ground in rural China.
