Our Commitment to Civil Rights and Human Dignity
The Global Teaching Project was created to advance a fundamental Civil Right—the right to a quality education—and we have made progress toward that goal. The Global Teaching Project has helped close educational disparities afflicting underserved rural, low-income, and minority communities by providing promising high school students access to rigorous courses that otherwise would be unavailable. We do so because we believe in the promise of America. Yet that promise is not evident to all, and is denied to some as a consequence of poverty, injustice, and even violence.
We condemn the conduct involved in the death of George Floyd, which is unworthy of our great nation, and support calls for justice to be served. We join with those who honor the ideals articulated in our founding documents, and resolve to work to help make those ideals a reality for all Americans. Read More
How it Works
The Global Teaching Project provides access to great teachers from around the world, using technology and face-to-face learning to deliver advanced coursework to students and schools everywhere, especially in communities where teacher shortages are most acute.
Where We Work
From rural Mississippi, to Central Appalachia, to last-mile schools in India, the Global Teaching Project delivers world-class instruction to talented students everywhere.
The Global Teaching Project’s STEM Pilot Program is “a Win-Win for everyone involved. Being able to work flexibly and creatively in that way are some of the ways in which we can help rural communities meet the needs of their students.”
The Honorable Betsy DeVos
U.S. Secretary of Education, 2017-Present
“In a rural part of Mississippi, we are able to get high quality instruction from Ivy League teachers and tutors…[T]he Global Teaching Project is the only chance a lot of these [rural] districts will get to even remotely offer courses like that.”
