  2d Session
S. RES. 359

Designating October 16, 2000, to October 20, 2000, as ``National Teach 
                          For America Week''.



                           September 21, 2000

 Mr. Schumer submitted the following resolution; which was referred to 
                     the Committee on the Judiciary



Designating October 16, 2000, to October 20, 2000, as ``National Teach 
                          For America Week''.

Whereas while the United States will need to hire over 2,000,000 new teachers 
        over the next decade, Teach For America has proven itself an effective 
        alternative means of recruiting gifted college graduates into the field 
        of education;
Whereas in its decade of existence, Teach For America's 6,000 corps members have 
        aided 1,000,000 low-income students at urban and rural sites across the 
        United States;
Whereas Teach For America's popularity continues to skyrocket, with a record-
        breaking number of men and women applying to become corps members for 
        the 2000-2001 school year;
Whereas over half of all Teach For America alumni continue to work within the 
        field of education after their two years of service are complete;
Whereas Teach For America corps members leave their service committed to life-
        long advocacy for low-income, underserved children;
Whereas over 100,000 schoolchildren are being taught by Teach For America corps 
        members in 2000; and
Whereas October 16th through 20th will be Teach For America's fourth annual 
        ``Teach For America'' week, during which government members, artists, 
        historians, athletes, and other prominent community leaders will visit 
        underserved classrooms served by Teach For America corps members: Now, 
        therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the Senate--
            (1) commends the Teach For America program, and its past 
        and present participants, for its contribution to our Nation's 
        public school system;
            (2) designates the week beginning on October 16, 2000, and 
        ending on October 20, 2000, as ``National Teach For America 
        Week''; and
            (3) encourages Senators and all community leaders to 
        participate in classroom visits to take place during the week.
