London Great Swim Challenge (18.07.2015) - CHALLENGE COMPLETED
Remember the most inspiring teacher you had at school? Remember the positive impact that their lessons had upon you? Remember the way they helped you grow and develop? Now imagine you had none of that encouragement in or out of the classroom. Would you still be the same person today?
The link between family income and educational success in the UK is stronger than anywhere else in the world. If you’re born into a poor family, you’re likely to study at poorer-quality schools and get a lesser education. 50% of those eligible for free school meals fail to get a single GCSE above a D grade. 3.6 million children live in recognised poverty in the UK. That means 1.8 million children failing to get a single D grade at the (likely) end of their education.
TeachFirst aims to change that, in a practical way. TeachFirst works in the UK to put enthusiastic graduates as teachers into schools in the most deprived communities – where traditionally teachers didn’t want to teach, attainment is low, and the chance of educational success is slim. By doing so they hope to inspire every child to educational success and happiness
