Golden Apple Foundation for Excellence in Teaching wrote -
The need is great- there are over 3,400 schools of need in the state of Illinois. Currently, Golden Apple Scholars impact the lives of nearly 60,000 students in Illinois. We are on a mission to support 75,000 students by the Fall of 2018. Schools of need carry unique challenges in which to accomplish student learning and growth. Golden Apple Scholars are prepared to be highly effective, dedicated teachers for at-risk students. The result is teachers who support and inspire students to thrive, regardless of adversity. Thank you for helping Golden Apple provide positive, credible, and stable role models for students in Illinois. Every student deserves a teacher who will say, "You can do something amazing. You matter."
