In a segment on Wendy Kopp and Teach for America, the Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School was featured on the Today Show. From Brett Kimmel, principal of Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School:

"We are thrilled to be one of the schools featured in Wendy Kopp’s new book, A Chance to Make History, which was released yesterday. Wendy, as you know, founded Teach for America (TFA) twenty years ago. As many of you also know, I am a TFA alum, as are many of the faculty members at WHEELS. According to A Chance to Make History, the book “shows that we can provide children born into poverty with a transformational education and give them a shot at a better life.” I urge you to pick up a copy of the book, even if you are not an educator; it is an important book and an excellent read. Look for WHEELS in Chapter 2 on 'Transformational Schools.'"
