Edwatch: Leadership for Education Equality

Organization Name: Leadership for Education Equality
Company Line: Leadership for Educational Equity (LEE) is a 501(c) (4) nonprofit organization that was launched in 2007 to inspire, train and support Teach For America alumni and corps members to pursue public leadership by providing or connecting them to high impact volunteer and career opportunities in politics, policy, advocacy, and elected office. Over the years, Teach For America alumni and corps members expressed a growing desire to engage more with the policy and political contexts that so impacted what they saw happening at the school and classroom level. Recognizing that Teach For America's ability to engage in or to support advocacy and political work is quite limited as a traditional 501(c)(3) organization, LEE was born.
Bottom Line: The political leg of Teach for America. Places TFA alums in positions of power to run for office and write education policy that promotes the "reform" agenda. Staffs nonprofit organizations that advocate for privatizing public schools including ALEC. As of 2012, financial records for this organization are not available from the IRS.
