UCSD Cares Week is April 13-17


On Monday, April 13 from 6-7:30 p.m., please join Education Corps and Teach for America at UCSD for a film screening and panel about equity in education and the current state of public education in America. “Waiting for Superman” is a 2010 documentary that analyzes the American public education system by following several students as they strive to be accepted into a charter school.

Education Corps will also be collecting school supplies for Tools for Schools, a drive benefiting 17 local San Diego K-12 schools, during the event and throughout the week in partnership with the UCSD Bookstore. Please feel free to bring your donation with you to participate!
